Description Daniel Thom 2004-11-10 17:52:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.3; Linux; x86_64) (KHTML, like Gecko) Description of problem: dhclient-script generated the following /etc/ntp.conf on my RHEL 3 Update 3 machine: # generated by /sbin/dhclient-script restrict default ignore restrict 127.0.0.1 driftfile /etc/ntp/data/drift broadcastdelay 0.008 authenticate yes keys /etc/ntp/keys restrict 10.1.0.12 nomodify notrap noquery server 10.1.0.12 The driftfile location does not exist and is different from the default ntp.conf file which points to /var/lib/ntp/drift which does exist. I checked my Fedora Core 3 Test 3 machine and it looks like the correct behavior happens there. That is running dhclient-3.0.1-9. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): dhclient-3.0pl2-6.14.1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Configure eth0 for dhcp with a dhcp server that hands out NTP information. 2. Run 'ifup eth0' 3. Rinse and repeat. Additional info: The problem in dhclient-script is obvious and easily repaired as it just has the wrong string in the here document it writes to ntp.conf.

dhcp-3.0.1-10_EL3 is now the latest version of dhcp for RHEL-3 and is in RHEL-3-U4, and does not have this problem. It can also be downloaded from: http://people.redhat.com/~jvdias/DHCP/RHEL-3

Excellent, thanks for the info, sorry for the redundant bug! One quick question though, is there currently a release version of this for RHEL-3? I saw a beta on RHN (dhcp-3.0.1-10_EL3:7 Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v. 3 for x86) Beta), but not one marked as release?

RHEL-3-U4 is still in 'beta' testing, so hence the 'beta' status of the dhcp-3.0.1-10_EL3 rpm you found, which is identical to the one available through this link: http://people.redhat.com/~jvdias/DHCP/RHEL-3 Quite a few customers have downloaded and are using this version. It's up to you whether to download and try it now or wait until RHEL-3-U4 is officially released.
