Description jar 1999-08-19 23:25:20 EDT
If you have configured a Redhat 6 machine to use DHCP and
you are required to send the DHCP server a hostname there
is no provision in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup do
do so.

My work around was to replace, in ifup:

      if /sbin/pump -i $DEVICE ; then


      if /sbin/pump -h `hostname` -i $DEVICE ; then

Very may DHCP sites would be set up so this is required, I

In initscripts-4.32 (will be in next rawhide), just set
the 'DHCP_HOSTNAME' variable in /etc/sysconfig/ifcfg-<device>,
and ifup will pass this to pump.
