How about shortening the max lease time?
I had a few systems last month where we saw the "Can't write to dhcp
lease file, No space left on device" error.
It was solved by setting the max lease time to 28800. Haven't seen
this issue on those systems since we did this.

On the other hand it's something strange, those systems were all
running over a year  without issues and all of a sudden they started
complaining about this.
The only thing changed is the userbase behind it (not the amount of
users, just different users)
