Last modified: 2013-10-31 05:48:52 EDT
Description of problem:
After restarting dnsmasq, all information of still valid leases is lost.
Hostnames won't resolve until the client refreshes the lease.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. stop dnsmasq service
2. start dnsmasq service
3. check leases file
leases file is empty
leases file will be populated
If version 2.6.6 is out, why doesnt RedHat suport it?
Because RHEL-5 is now in production phase 2 - see https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/ . Red Hat Enterprise Linux keeps old packages and backports just the fixes/features important for customers - as rebases may break the setup of the customers. Please, don't expect dnsmasq 2.66 in RHEL-5.
In addition - as I said - we are now in production phase 2. Thus, updates are driven by customer requests. Bugzilla is bug tracking tool, but not a tool for support/customer requests.
If this issue is critical or in any way time sensitive, please raise a ticket through your regular Red Hat support channels to make certain it receives the proper attention and prioritization to assure a timely resolution.
