Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 104511
dhcpd brings down interface when it has IPv6 but not IPv4 address.
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:57:36 EDT
If dhcpcd fails to get a DHCP lease, it'll down the interface -- even if
the interface has a valid IPv6 address. This is bad; the interface should be
left up and running.
fixed in dhclient-3.0.1
