I have been trying to configure dhcp client on ge-0/0/0, I have asked a question before about it in this link

At first the solution provided worked, but when I started the virtual machine again it didn't work.

I tried to trace the error and created a log file using the following commands :

 set system services dhcp traceoptions file dhcp_client.dbg
 set system services dhcp traceoptions flag client
 set system services dhcp traceoptions level all 

Then I used : show log dhcp_client,dbg and got the following output:

enter image description here

The output of : show system services dhcp client is :

enter image description here

As you can see the mac address is 00:00:00:00:00:00

I tried assigning the mac address of the vmware network adapter manually and I got the following error:

enter image description here

I halted the machine and regenerated the mac of the adapter connecting to ge-0/0/0 but the problem wasn't solved.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?

  • You can copy the console output. People do it all the time. You can ask about how to do that on Super User or Server Fault.

1 Answer 1


After searching I found that the I gave the virtual machine resources less than what it needs. Once I increased the memory the problem was solved.
