Machine alias in config.gateway.json - but not taking effect + DHCPD service not working on reboot

[ Edited ]

I've provisioned,, and used the mca-ctrl -t dump-cfg command I can see

"Playstation": {
"ip-address": "192.168.10.37",
"mac-address": "f8:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx"
},

 

With the mac address and  my desired ip

But the machine is still hanging on to an old address (10.189).  I've looked inteh hosts file and can't see that machine listed.

 

I've been through this procedure with other machines (on older firmware) and it's been fine, so I can't figure out what I'm missing.

 

Thoughts?

Also in trying to get this to work I rebooted the USG.....this brought on no end of problems.

 

No machine was able to get DHCP, especially my wireless devices.  Took me quite a quire to figure out what to do, and the answer was reboot dhcpd and dnsmasq services.

 

Is this part of the changeover of dhcp to dnsmasq?  Not that I have that turned on.   It seems that whenever I reboot I have to restart dhcpd afterwards.  I do have a firmware upgrade to perform, but was holding off for a bit.

 

 

USG Firmware: 4.4.18.5052168

Controller 5.8.24
