Description Colin.Simpson 2008-06-23 13:38:14 EDT
Description of problem:
On boot or by running command /etc/init.d/dhcpd start, dhcpd
claims to start but isn't running when you ps for it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version RH Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run /etc/init.d/dhcpd restart
2. Claims to have started.
3. ps -ef  |grep dhcp , it isn't running. 
Actual results:
This seems to be a regression, as it worked in 5.1, failed on 5.2 update.

Expected results:
Daemon to be running. 

Additional info:

The daemon seems to start up i.e it puts the correct log entries into
/var/log/messages. It looks like it's the forked child that dies. The program
runs fine with a "-f" flag put in. In fact my present workaround is rather
horrible with:

daemon $dhcpd $DHCPDARGS -f 2>/dev/null &
, in the startup file.

Replying to my own problem, this seem to be related to and caused by Bug
#448014. Downgrading to nss_ldap-253-5.el5 resolved this issue.
