Thanks for "confirmation". Looking at the dhcpd.conf, this has been set since
the beginning. I don't think that any of these updates was coming from the
dhcpd, they were in time intervals (20 mins or a few hours) that didn't match
with the re-lease interval (one day). And as I wrote, it was only coming from
one single machine. I checked the log files on it and it stopped exactly at the
time the machine got rebooted because it acquired the latest security update
from Microsoft. So, there was obviously something goofy for about three days on
that machine that let it do those update requests. Maybe the VMWare DHCP service
on that machine was responsible as this shows up with a single error message on
the 8th, when it all seems to have started.
