Description Frantisek Hanzlik 2013-05-27 04:19:58 EDT
Description of problem:
Now isn't possible to specify command line arguments (as e.g. listening interfaces, config file, etc.) - that what was defined in /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd in OPTIONS variable in old gold pre-systemd times.
Some of command line parameters are fixed in dhcpd unit, but it is senseless
edit this unit for each individual setting, moreover this is incompatible with previous behavior.

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

Expected results:
IMO for backward compatibility /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd options should be possible.

We dropped using EnvironmentFile in dhcpd.service file in Fedora 18. If you need
to use custom dhcpd.service file you should copy the whole service file from
/lib/systemd/system to /etc/systemd/system and edit it there. Service files in
/etc/systemd/system have higher precedence over service files in
