Let me explain the scenario:
- I have a number of computers acquiring IP-address by DHCP and I have
dnsmasq configured with static leases for specific mac-addresses.
- I also have a couple of virtual computers for very specific purposes that
I run from a live Linux distro from a USB drive. Physically I can run them
on any of my 'physical' computers.
Now the problem and questions:
- I configured the virtual-usb computers to present themselves with
- I configured dnsmasq to assign an ip-address based on the hostname, and
it works fine ... *IF AND ONLY IF* I don't have a specific mac-address
based dhsp-host entry.
Apparently when I have more than one dhcp-host entries matching the DHCP
request, the mac-addr based one is the preferred one. I've tried
configuring it in different order but always the mac-addr based is the
So, my question: is there any way to set up the precedence of the dhcp-host
entry in case more than one match the DHCP request?
Thanks a lot in advance.
