I also posted this question on the answers.launchpad.net site before I foudn this one, sorry for the duplication...

I just upgraded both of my DHCP servers running failover to Xenial and now neither one allows the isc-dhcp-server to start.

I am have been searching all morning, not even sure where to run for more than 30 seconds.

Mar 16 11:04:48 cooper dhcpd[18118]: failover peer dhcp: I move from startup to recover
Mar 16 11:04:49 cooper sh[18118]: ../../../../lib/isc/unix/socket.c:3295: INSIST(!sock->pending_send) failed, back trace

Mar 16 11:04:49 cooper systemd[1]: isc-dhcp-server.service: Failed with result 'signal'.

It seems to run but not serve up IPs for maybe 30 seconds before it crashes. Any help is appreciated.

More info:

  • xenial is off-topic till release. – Pilot6 Mar 16 '16 at 16:20
  • You can get help for the development version of Ubuntu (16.04, right now) over on Ubuntu forums. The dhcpd server has had some issues, but I have had one running smoothly on a 16.04 server for a few months now. – Doug Smythies Mar 16 '16 at 22:37
