Description ross tyler 2001-09-06 16:45:54 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2smp i686)

Description of problem:
the man page says:

Normally pump  sets  the  system's NIS  domain  if  an NIS domain is
specified by the dhcp server and the current NIS domain  is  empty  or 

i have configured my dhcp server (redhat linux 7.1 dhcpd-2.0pl5-4) to
provide values for the nis-domain and nis-servers options.
by configuring syslog to log *.debug messages and running pump,
i see these options (40 and 41) supplied in the DHCPOFFER (but not in the
DHCPACK) and pump does not report a "intf: nisDomain: %s" change.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure interface as dhcp client
2. (un)configure setting of NISDOMAIN (domainname)
3. configure dhcp server to supply values for nis-domain and nis-servers
4. configure dhcp client's syslog to capture *.debug messages to a file.
5. reboot dhcp client.
6. run domainname command.
7. inspect debug output from pump in the syslog file.

Actual Results:  6. (none).
7. see description

Expected Results:  6. <the value of the nis-domain option>
