Description Gideon Naim 2008-08-07 12:02:58 EDT
Description of problem:

LINKDELAY parameter has been added to initscripts-7.93.33-1 but this value isn't part of the DHCP script - line 269 in network-functions its still a constant value.

The DHCP usage of LINKDELAY was added in initscripts-8.38-1 (RHEL5), but not to the initscripts RPMs for RHEL4 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): initscripts-7.93.33-1

How reproducible:

System reboot test on systems that can not guarantee a network time to link of 5 seconds.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure DHCP on a network adapter
2. Connect to a DHCP
3. Reboot test
Actual results:

Networking device gets disabled.

Expected results:

LINKDELAY should cause the DHCP script to not timeout and succeed.

Additional info:

This bug is similar to #191137 that has been fixed in RHEL5

I have verified that this is fixed in 4.8 Beta and that the LINKDELAY parameter is being used correctly when DHCP is configured.
