Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2005-07-27 13:34:29 EDT
This is actually fixed with the current dhcp-3.0.1-40_EL4 version submitted
to RHEL-4, and available from:
Owing to lack of QA budget, this update has not been scheduled for any RHEL-4
release. If you would like RHEL-4 dhcpd to be cluster aware, please contact your
Red Hat account manager / product managment.
BTW, your patch does not take account of the dhcpd '-cf' argument in configtest,
which the 40_EL4 version does.
Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2005-07-28 10:48:51 EDT
This is fixed with dhcp-3.0.1-40_EL4 (errata RHBA-2005:161 (RHEL-4)) and 
dhcp-3.0.1-40_EL3 (errata RHBA-2005:162 (RHEL-3)), both of which have been
"Defferred" by QE management.
