Description Ryan Weiss 2001-05-02 15:36:21 UTC
Running init.d/dhcpd start|stop|status gives no output, and doesn't start 
the server.  Running /usr/sbin/dhcpd kicks an error 
about /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases missing.  Doing a 
touch /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases and then kicking the server makes it work 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install dhcp-2.0p15-4 rpm
2.Edit /etc/dhcpd.conf (this step doesn't make a diff)
3.run /etc/rc.d/init.d/dhcpd start|status|<nothing>

Actual Results:  see no output, and server doesn't start -broken IMHO

Expected Results:  touch /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases - try step 2 again, 
and it will work server starts running

If you run /usr/sbin/dhcpd at step 3 above, you get an error message:
Can't open lease database /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases: No such file or 
directory -- check for failed database rewrite attempt!
Please read the dhcpd.leases manual page if you.
don't know what to do about this.
