DHCPNAK When NFS Booting a Kernel

Fri 01 January 2016 | tags: linux

I figured out one of my issues when NFS booting my Raspberry Pi monitoring server. During boot, it would hang with DHCP NAK being received by the Pi. This happened after I added a static DHCP lease that was different than the automatic DHCP lease originally configured.

The fix was to remove the old lease file /var/lib/dhcp/dhclient.eth0.leases.
