No IP-Adress via DHCP

Postby Guest » Sun Apr 09, 2017 2:35 pm


I have Version 5.4.82 on a Raspi 3 with a local stored config und boot from sd-card.

Obtaining ip-adress via DHCP-Server fails against a Windows Server 2008 R2. I can find the following line in DHCP-Logs:


The thinclient gets NO valid ip-adress.

Against the DHCP-Server on my Internet-Router is all ok.

Have you any idea, why the error "DropEmpyName" is logged and no ip-adress is allocated?

I must use the DHCP-Server on Windows Server 2008 R2. An alterntive DHCP-Task is not possible

Is there a config-parameter to avoid that behaviour?

Even Google did not know "DropEmptyName” word.

Please, give me more real information. DHCP error screenshot. Terminal screen photo after error appears.

After terminal stops with error, it shows command line. Type:
cat /tmp/all.log
Press Shift-PageUp.
Repeat "Press Shift-PageUp. Photo." three times.

Post it here or mail to
