dhcp noisy on boot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:59 EST
dhcpd is very noisy on bootup, this started happening about the time of some
initscript changes a few weeks back.
When started, the daemon prints out:
[root@tornado init.d]# /etc/init.d/dhcpd start
Starting dhcpd: Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Server V3.0.2rc3

[ OK ]
It should simply print out:
Starting dhcp: [ OK ]
When dhcp is run from rc.sysinit, ie. during the boot process, or from
"service dhcpd start", these messages should not appear on the terminal
- if they do, it is related to the removal of initlog / minilogd in
initscripts - nothing has changed in dhcpd or the /etc/init.d/dhcpd script
that would cause these messages to appear - they used to be logged via
initlog. This is not a dhcp bug.
It's behaving the same way as if dhcpd was run by hand; in my opinion, if those
are critical messages, they should be logged by the daemon itself. If not, they
should be silenced.
This bug is now fixed in dhcp-3.0.2rc3-3, now in FC4/rawhide .
Please test and let me know if it fixes your problem - thanks.
Yep, resolved now, thanks Jason.
