      Hi luis,
      It just because of selinux . please disable selinux and reboot your machine and try again.

      #vim /etc/selinux/config
      find this line
      and replace with

      and reboot your machine .

    I’m having an odd problem, it keeps telling me semicolon expected when I start the dhcpd service, but I’m sitting here looking at the semicolon in the config file. I’ve re-created a few times and the same thing happens, won’t allow me to start the service.
