#3892 closed defect (duplicate)

Kea doesn't handle missing lease database configuration well

When lease database is not specified, Kea starts, complains about missing database and tries to run, but then rapidly spews error messages about timers failing due to missing database.

This should be sanitized. Possible options:

  1. Allow running without database (that's preferred, especially for running in stateless-mode)
  1. Detect this error, print something out and terminate.
  1. Assume that if not specified memfile is the default, assume path and run normally.
