Discovered in Redhat 5.2 Intel and Sparc versions that the
DHCPD rpm does not install or create the sample config file
/etc/dhcpd.conf and the lease file /etc/dhcpd.leases  Not a
big issue for the experanced user to get the source RPM and
pull the config out of there but new users would have had
difficulty with it.

Older releases also did not ship a /etc/dhcp.conf file in the dhcp rpm
package. It is probably a good idea better the documentaion on how to
create one. But it is a bad idea to have a sample one placed directly
in /etc in case the user has it accidently start up on a active
network. May be a dhcpd.conf.sample in /etc or /usr/doc/dhcp-x.x would
be a better choice.
Comment 2 craig 1998-11-29 23:55:59 EST
I agree with you the default file should be made a
/etc/dhcpd.conf.sample  the default file starting up would be a bad
voo do for most.
Comment 3 Erik Troan 1999-01-11 15:54:59 EST
I added a /usr/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample file for the next release.
