Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4057
/etc/resolv.conf incomplete when using dhcp (nt dhcp server)
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
Using an nt dhcp server, providing dns, domainname and
default gateway -- and ip address. It works OK with 5.2.
In 6.0 /etc/resolv.conf isn't updated properly.
The address assignment seems to work ok. If the missing
information is provided manually the machine works OK.
The bug makes it pretty hard to maintain 6.0 clients...
