Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 41029
redhat 7.1 DHCP/PUMP times out for getting IP address from DHCP server

Description of problem:
I was running redhat 7.0 on the network via DHCP client. Then I freshly installed the redhat7.1
and networking no longer works. PUMP basically gets the timed out message in the /var/log.
I contacted the RedHat technical support and he suggested me to use the static address
(192.xx.xx.xx) to verify that the network card is functional or not. With the static IP address
via netconfig utility, "ifup eth0" command worked fine and I was able to ping the dummy static
IP address with no problem. So it must be something not working with PUMP.
Then I downgraded the PUMP RPM from 7.1 to 7.0 (0.8.11 to 0.8.3) and I am still
getting the "dhcpd: timed out..." message in the log file. My NIC card is Digital DS21140.
Any suggestion or help would appreciate it. I might have to go back to redhat 7.0 if
there is work-around to this problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. After install the redhat 7.1, reboot
Actual Results: There is a long timeout for eth0 network during boot time and "dhcpd: timed out" message
in the log file.
Expected Results: Get the IP address from the DHCP server and enable the networking.
I have the same behaviour here.
The only thing is that the dhclient v3.0rc10 from ISC can
manage to retrieve the dhcp config.
Sorry for the delay.
I don't have any clues on what the problem is right now, but it would be helpful
to know if anyone out there is still experiencing this problem with the 2nd
