Pi-Hole as DHCP - clients not getting IP

I deactivated dhcp on my router and activated it in pi-hole, but now the devices dont get ip adresses anymore

Please send us the token generated by

pihole -d

or do it through the Web interface:


Your debug log shows some setup problems with the Pi. You have Pi-Hole configured for IP 2 on ethernet, but there is no IPv4 address on that interface.

Check that the Pi has a valid IPv4 address: ip a

Look in the router and see which IP the Pi is using to connect to the router.

With that IP reserved or static, reconfigure Pi-Hole for that IP - pihole -r and select "reconfigure"
