Description of problem:
The example dhcpd.conf file in the Red Hat Linux Configuration guide found at
configuring-server.html has an error in it. The argument to time-offset should
be in seconds, not timezone.
This is the same problem as noted in bug # 26446, but the fix does not seem to
have made it to the documentation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/linux/RHL-7.3-Manual/custom-
2. Scroll down to Example 12-1 and check out line 8.
Actual Results: Option listed as:
option time-offset -5; # Eastern Standard Time
Expected Results: Should be:
option time-offset -18000; # Eastern Standard Time
Thanks for your report. I have fixed it in CVS for the next release
and in the HTML version on redhat.com/docs.
