DHCP: How do I configure DHCP server dynamically?????

Post by Chabane Rezzi » Sun, 02 Sep 2001 06:00:00

Hi there,

I have a network configured with two DHCP servers. At a given time I
Server A to serve diskless nodes x y and z and server B to serve
diskless nodes a b c  and d. And this changes based on certain
conditions on the network. I need to adapt to the network conditions.

Is there any API to configure DHCP server?

1. RH 5.1 flawless ftp-dhcp install; dhcp config retained; dhcp fails @ boot

DHCP fails to configure a network connection, even after it worked
wonderfully for an ftp install of RH 5.1 and I retained the network
configuration during the install process.  The relevant message on the
console during bootup is: DHCP ... failed.  The only message in
/var/log/messages that appears to be relevant is "no DHCPOFFER".
/sbin/ifconfig lists nothing for eth0.

A number of modules relevant to DHCP are loaded. I assume that all
necessary modules have been loaded.  The eithernet card also appears
to be correctly recognized.

I've read but not yet tried the Red Hat hacks listed in the DHCPcd
mini-HOWTO.  Has anyone successfully used these on RH 5.1?
