You may wish to use larger initCrcLen for this sourcetype, or a CRC salt on this source. Consult the documentation or file a support case online at http://www.splunk.com/page/submit_issue for more info.

You have crcSalt = TestDHCP in your props.conf

I would remove the crcSalt setting entirely unless you are sure you need it (then restart splunk)

Alternatively, set it to

crcSalt = <SOURCE>

See the section labelled crcSalt at http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.3.2/Admin/Inputsconf
