Description Neil Wilson 2016-11-24 08:30:27 EST
Description of problem:

dnsmasq lacks the ra-param option

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

Name        : dnsmasq
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 2.66
Release     : 14.el7_2.1

Additional info:

The version of dnsmasq in RHEL7 lacks the ra-param option available in version 2.67 and above - which means that dnsmasq can't be used as a full replacement for radvd.

The particular use case here is when routers switch over and you want to lower the route priority/lifetime of one vs. the other.
