Why different clients obtain the same IP address

When an S series switch functions as a DHCP server, a DHCP client accesses the network again in the following process:
The DHCP client broadcasts a DHCP Request packet carrying the IP address allocated in the first time, that is, the Option 50 field in the packet. After receiving the DHCP Request packet, the DHCP server checks whether the lease record exists based on the MAC address in the packet. If so, the DHCP server replies with a DHCP ACK packet to notify the DHCP client that the requested IP address can be used. If not, the DHCP server waits for a new DHCP Discover message from the client.
