Description Sandeep MJ 2018-05-03 02:23:23 UTC
Description of problem:
After upgrade to "dhclient-4.2.5-68.el7.x86_64", unable to get results on the specifying the "dhcp-client-identifier"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure DHCP server:

# rpm -q dhclient

[root@server ~]# cat /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf 
subnet netmask {
host client {option dhcp-client-identifier "client"; fixed-address ; }

2. Run "dhclient -I" on the client:

[root@client ~]# dhclient -I client
cant find device client
[root@client ~]# rpm -q dhclient

Actual results:
cant find device client

Expected results:

[root@client2 ~]# dhclient -I client

[root@client2 ~]# ifconfig enp0s3
enp0s3: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast
        inet6 fe80::a00:27ff:fec9:5aff  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>

        TX packets 312  bytes 39583 (38.6 KiB)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

[root@client2 ~]# rpm -q dhclient

Additional info:

The man page on the upgraded versions lists two entries for "-I":

         -I <dhcp-client-identifier>
              Specify the dhcp-client-identifier option to send to the DHCP server.

       -I     Use the standard DDNS scheme from RFCs 4701 & 4702.
