Can't add new fixed DHCP leases after apt-upgrade

Ran apt-upgrade a few days ago and I’m wanting to have fixed leases for my IOT devices. I tried saving a fixed lease today and pihole will not save it.

Expected Behaviour:

When I add a DHCP fixed lease and hit save, it saves the fixed lease

Actual Behaviour:

Hitting Save does not save the DHCP fixed lease

Debug Token:!

What are the outputs of the following commands:

ls -lh /etc/pihole/dhcp.leases

cat /etc/pihole/dhcp.leases

ls -lh /etc/pihole/dhcp.leases
-rw-r--r-- 1 pihole pihole 1.1K Apr 13 15:45 /etc/pihole/dhcp.leases

Might give the pihole a reboot this morning to see if this clears the issue up.

What is the output of cat /etc/dnsmasq.d/04-pihole-static-dhcp.conf


I suppose I could manually add entries to this file and restart dnsmasq

The reboot did nothing but it was worth a shot.

That is your static lease file. It’s not clear why entries are not being saved to it. I would check permissions on that file and see if they are the same as /etc/pihole/dhcp.leases
