Description Christian Lepine 2001-12-04 13:07:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
The daemon dhcpd makes a log for each lease in /var/log/messages.

I need to know how to disable that behavior.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure /etc/dhcpd.conf
2.Create /var/lib/dhcp/dhcpd.leases
3.Start dhcpd
4.View the content of /var/log/messages

Actual Results:  The file is increasing in volume.

I have 300 machines !

Expected Results:  No more logging in /var/log/messages

This is fixed in rawhide by dhcp-3.0, which allows control over the logging done
by dhcpd
