I am running Firewalla Gold as a router with the current version of OS. (v 1.42.51)
I have multiple ESXI hosts (6.5 and 7.0) I run at home. All my VM's are set to static reservations. There are times when a VM goes "offline" because the IP it now has isn't the one from the reservation. When I go back and look at the device the reservation is still setup correctly. If I reboot the device it still has the incorrect IP and not the one from the reservation. However, if I shut it down and leave it off for a bit (this timing has varied depending on the server) and then restart it, it will come back up on the correctly reserved IP. I multiple VM's on multiple hosts that have had this issue. I have tried moving hosts and have still had issues on various VM's. Also when it is in the state with the incorrect IP it shows as up in the device list while still showing the reservation. So it seems like the firewall is what is handing out the incorrect IP.
It seems like the hardwired devices don't have the issue, but I will say that with my bind DHCP server prior I didn't run into this issue with the VM's.
