Description Vladimir Benes 2018-11-13 13:53:46 UTC
Description of problem:
this test failed:
    * Add connection type "ethernet" named "con_ipv4" for device "eth2" ... passed in 0.194s
    * Bring "up" connection "con_ipv4" ... passed in 2.150s
    * Execute "echo 'send fqdn.encoded off;' > /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth2.conf" ... passed in 0.304s
    * Execute "echo 'send fqdn.server-update off;' >> /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth2.conf" ... passed in 0.303s
    * Open editor for connection "con_ipv4" ... passed in 0.300s
    * Submit "set ipv4.dhcp-fqdn foo.bar.com" in editor ... passed in 0.050s
    * Save in editor ... passed in 0.251s
    * Quit editor ... passed in 0.050s
    * Run child "sudo tshark -l -O bootp -i eth2 > /tmp/tshark.log" ... passed in 0.004s
Running as user "root" and group "root". This could be dangerous.
Capturing on 'eth2'
     When "empty" is not visible with command "file /tmp/tshark.log" in "150" seconds ... passed in 2.350s
    * Bring "up" connection "con_ipv4" ... passed in 0.215s
     And "foo.bar.com" is visible with command "cat /tmp/tshark.log" ... passed in 1.211s
     And "Server: Client" is visible with command "cat /tmp/tshark.log" ... failed in 1.114s

so we are unable to provide ASCII coding and Server: Client 

as was possible with:
echo 'send fqdn.encoded off;' > /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth2.conf
echo 'send fqdn.server-update off;' >> /etc/dhcp/dhclient-eth2.conf
