OK, that was easier to fix than I thought ;-)

It was the dhcpd.conf, open /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf in your favourite
editor and find this line:

set ClientDHCID = binary-to-ascii(16, 8, ":", hardware);

It appears twice.

Replace with this:

set ClientDHCID = concat (
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,1,1))),2), ":",
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,2,1))),2), ":",
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,3,1))),2), ":",
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,4,1))),2), ":",
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,5,1))),2), ":",
suffix (concat ("0", binary-to-ascii (16, 8, "", substring(hardware,6,1))),2)
);

Restart the dhcp server.

With this:

Commit: IP: 192.168.0.189 DHCID: 08:00:27:9c:28:61 Name: testcen7mem

DHCPREQUEST for 192.168.0.189 from 08:00:27:9c:28:61 (testcen7mem) via
eth0
