Description Matthew Booth 2006-11-26 22:18:07 UTC
Description of problem:
man dhcp6s.conf says:
       send server-preference <server preference value>;

Specifying 'send server-preference 10' in dhcp6s.conf causes an error. The
correct syntax is 'server-preference 10' (omit 'send'). The example
/usr/share/doc/dhcpv6-0.10/dhcp6s.conf is correct.

Fixed in dhcpv6-0.10-15_EL4 and rawhide.  Setting some flags to see what happens.

Comment 3 James Laska 2006-12-14 14:36:46 UTC
This bug is filed against RHEL 4.4 ... but using RHEL5 flags.

Please use a separate bug for each product.

Comment 4 Ken Reilly 2006-12-14 23:23:59 UTC
I reset the rhel-5.0.0 flag to " " given this was reported against RHEL 4.4.
And, I changed the status to MODIFIED based on Comment #1. 

I'll leave it to the reporter and/or the maintainer to raise a separate bug for
rhel-5.0.0, if need be.  

Comment 5 David Cantrell 2006-12-15 16:36:26 UTC
OK, I confused myself with this bug.  When I saw it again, I forgot that it was
a RHEL4 bug and thought it was marked as "do something with it", so the problem
has been fixed in RHEL5.  My mistake.

Cloning for RHEL5 so we can track it.
