And return to a shell. This bug block tahi dhcpv6 test case.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.vi /tmp/dhcp6s.conf
interface eth0 {
#server-preference 255;
renew-time 5000;
rebind-time 8000;
prefer-life-time 10000;
valid-life-time 10000;
#allow rapid-commit;
option dns_servers 3ffe:501:ffff:100:210:18ff:fe32:56e2 redhat.com;
#option dns_servers 3ffe:501:ffff:100::10;
link AAA {
range 3ffe:501:ffff:101::10 to 3ffe:501:ffff:101::11/64;
prefix 3ffe:501:ffff:101::/48;
host TN {
duid 00:01:00:01:00:04:93:e0:00:00:00:00:a2:a2;
2.run command
#dhcp6s -dDf -c /tmp/dhcp6s.conf eth0(your interface name)
Actual results:
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 extracted an existing DUID from
/var/lib/dhcpv6/dhcp6s_duid: 00:01:00:01:10:18:d0:6a:02:00:00:00:03:00
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 found an interface eth0 harware 00:10:18:32:56:e2
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 saved generated DUID to /var/lib/dhcpv6/dhcp6s_duid
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 set timer for syncing file ...
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 add domain name redhat.com
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 configure duid is 00:01:00:01:00:04:93:e0:00:00:00:00:a2:a2
Jul/23/2008 01:16:22 interface definition for eth0 is ok

It always stop here.

Expected results:
should return a shell and continue run dhcp6s in backend.

The -f switch for dhcp6s causes the program to run in the foreground.  If you want it to run as a 
background process, do not specify the -f switch on the command line.
Comment 3 Yang Ren 2008-07-22 23:38:12 EDT
oh good.
After I change the command.The tahi test case can be run in debug mode now.
And any question When Can I get the detail debug log /var/log/message ?
I only can see very simple message in /var/log/message.
