Could you post (or send to me) you complete dnsmasq configuration. I'd
expect, if the IP address associated with the MAC address is in use,
for dnsmasq to log that and use a dynamically allocated address instead.

Why not nail the IP address using the client-id of the final OS
booted, rather thna using MAC addresses?


Cheers,

Simon.
