Description Tim Verhoeven 2002-11-19 09:56:05 EST
Description of problem:
The pxe daemon will crash each time after it has served a request to a client.
Tested with multiple clients. There is no information in the logs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): pxe-0.1-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.service pxe start -> OK
2.let client start using pxe
3.service pxe status -> pxe dead but pid file exists

Actual Results:  pxe process is gone, but pid file still exists.

Expected Results:  pxe process should still be running.

Additional info:

The server is a IBM xSeries 230. The clients are IBM Thinkpads and Blades. The
server with the pxe daemon has all updates on it.

I've seen the daemon crashing regularly with the 8.0 pxe package too.

If you could use 'tcpdump -w badpxe.packets' to capture the network traffic that causes the 
problem, and then attach that file to this bug report, that would help immensely.

I've just tried it on our regular network but the daemon didn't crash. I'll have
to reconstructed a private LAN where I can run the Red Hat dhcp daemon.

I'll let you know as soon as I have some time to set it all up.
