Description of problem:
A step is missing in Chapter 21. Between 21.1 and 21.2 there are no instructions for installing the packages needed for DHCP server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4
2.Attempt to follow procedure in 21.2
3.Observe that file /usr/share/doc/dhcp-<version>/dhcpd.conf.sample. does not exist
Unable to perform configuration
A procedure with instructions for verifying the necessary packages for a DHCP server are installed. If the packages are not installed, instructions for installing them.
Tom is correct: the package is not installed, installation instructions are missing, and so too, therefore, are the config files. I have changed the text at the top of 21.2. Configuring a DHCP Server in 5.4 to read:
The dhcp package contains an ISC DHCP server. First, install the package as the superuser:
~]# yum install dhcp
Installing the dhcp package creates a file, /etc/dhcpd.conf, which is merely an empty configuration file:
~]# cat /etc/dhcpd.conf
# DHCP Server Configuration file.
# see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample
The sample configuration file can be found at /usr/share/doc/dhcp-<version>/dhcpd.conf.sample. You should use this file to help you configure /etc/dhcpd.conf, which is explained in more detail below.
Tom, does this documentation fix accord with you?
