Last modified: 2012-07-23 09:02:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Running dhclient from rhel 5.8 stage2 does not set the IP Address on the interface. It shows in the output that it has bounded to an IP address but that is not set on the interface.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot a RHEL 5.8 server in the pre installation environment
2. Run dhclient interface_name
the ip address to which it has bounded is not set on the interface
the ip address to be set on the interface

dhclient adds the address to interface in /sbin/dhclient-script in dhconfig() function. You can add a 'set -x' as a first line in the dhconfig() function. That could help us get more info of what's been wrong.
We do not have /sbin/dhclient-script . We are in the pre installation environment using a ISO to load the initrd and stage2 images and there we are trying to run dhclient
Found the issue. We needed to call pump as well for the interface

Does that mean that we can close this ticket ?
