DHCP clients lose IPs after default-lease-time


I use a DHCP and radvd server on my Proxmox server for automatic IP allocation.

Unfortunately I noticed that the clients lose their IPv4 address after a while.
The IPv6 remains the same but the IPv4 disappears. A reboot helps here, but after some time the IP will be gone as well.

In the first place I missed the entry "max-lease-time" in the DHCP config, I just added it and created 4 VMs as a test.
All of them successfully received an IP, but after about 10 minutes the IP was gone for all VMs.
The 10min correspond to my default-lease-time, apparently the VMs don't renew the lease somehow?

Does anyone here have an idea what this could be due to? Unfortunately I am currently quite helpless.

Greetings and thanks a lot!
