Description Gareth Howell 2001-03-30 10:36:56 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)


When using linuxconf to configure a single adapter machine that is set to
use dhcp, no DHCP_HOSTNAME setting is placed in ifcfg-eth0, thus preventing
pump or dhcpcd from using the '-h hostname' parameter.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.use linuxconf to configure a hostname (and optionally an identical
adapter name)
2.accept changes and confirm that the adapter name has been cleared.
3.view the ifcfg-eth0 file and confirm that no DHCP_HOSTNAME is set
4. run ifup eth0 in debug mode and confirm that no parameters are provided
to pump
	

Actual Results:  The dhcp server does not have a client-hostname entry for
the problem machine, and thus dynamic dns updates cannot be used.

Expected Results:  The dhcpd.leases file entry should have had 
client-hostname entry.

dhcpd server is running on SUSE 6.4

Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
