Description Bill Nottingham 2011-08-09 16:33:57 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #729292 +++

Description of problem:
While experimenting with IPv6, DHCP & DDNS, I noticed a typo in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifdown-eth.
In the stanza handling dhclient shutdown (line 73) the PID file name passed to dhclient does not include the IP version prefix. IPv4 is closed first, removing it's PID file, then IPv6 is closed using the (now removed) IPv4 PID file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
/sbin/dhclient -r -lf /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient$VER-${DEVICE}.leases -pf /var/run/dhclient-${DEVICE}.pid ${DEVICE} >/dev/null 2>&1

Expected results:
/sbin/dhclient -r -lf /var/lib/dhclient/dhclient$VER-${DEVICE}.leases -pf /var/run/dhclient$VER-${DEVICE}.pid ${DEVICE} >/dev/null 2>&1
