Just curious if the internal DHCP server on an Aruba 3200 running AOS 22.214.171.124 probes to see if the IP is in use before assigning it? I am currently in a situation where our Guest DHCP pool is being depleted and i often have to go in and clear the bindings. We are working to move this off to a dedicated DHCP server, but until then i wanted to know if we will run into issues with IP conflicts when clearing bindings?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick reply! I currently have the lease time set to 1 hour...I have read people setting this to as low as 15 min. Although this would be helpful for the average iPod/iPhone user checking Facebook status, etc. How would this affect users with laptops running applications that require a long term connection i.e., email, etc.?
Thanks again cjoseph.

That would only mean that those devices would request an ip address more frequently (50% of the lease time, as per the RFP). Besides that, it should not be a problem.
