Description Jim Richardson 2003-10-04 18:11:09 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux)

Description of problem:
According to the dhclient.conf man page you should be able to prepend and/or append statements to the resolv.conf which is written upon successful dchp.

I have looked through the script and there appears to be no support for this.

I realize I can set PEERDNS = NO to disable writing, but there are instances where prepending/appending would be very desirable.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add statement "prepend nameserver;" to the appropriate dhclient*.conf
2. perform an ifdown/ifup on the appropriate dhcp interface


Actual Results:  the resulting resolv.conf file will not have the desired prepended entry

Expected Results:  3. the resulting resolv.conf file would have the desired prepended entry

Comment 1 Jason Vas Dias 2004-08-20 15:42:01 UTC
dhclient-3.0.1+ (latest version) now fully supports and honours
the prepend, append, and supersede options in /etc/dhclient-${IF}.conf
(eg./etc/dhclient-eth0.conf if eth0 is being configured with DHCP).
