  2. Select the IP Space tab. Tabs remember the page you last worked on, so select the tab again to ensure you're on the Configuration information page.
  3. Under IPv4 Blocks, click an IPv4 block.
  4. Click the DHCP Leases History tab. To view the DHCP lease history for a specific network, navigate to an IPv4 network and click the DHCP Leases History tab.
    The DHCP Leases History section displays the following information:
    • Active IP Address—lists the IP addresses that are actively leased or that have a history of having been leased. For more information on IP address types, refer to Address types.
    • Lease Time—displays the date and time the lease was granted.
    • Expire Time—displays the date and time the least is to expire.
    • Number of Transactions—displays the number of transactions performed to assign, renew, or terminate the lease. The table is initially sorted in descending order, based on the number of transactions.
    • State—displays the current state of the lease, such as DHCP Allocated, DHCP Free, or DHCP Reserved.
    • Parameter Request List—displays the list of parameters the device requested from the DHCP server.
    • Vendor Class Identifier—displays an identifier sent by the DHCP client software running on a device.
    • Circuit ID—shows information specific to the circuit from which the request came.
    • Name—the name you created for the IP address.
