Thread: No DHCP?

  1. #1

    Default No DHCP?

    Perhaps I'm going mad, but I started a 15.2 update to discover the installer wanted to remove the ISC DHCP server. So I checked the repos "No official package for 15.3". I looked at the release notes for removed packages - not listed, I searched the Net, nobody mentioning it. Am I missing something ? DHCP and interlinking with BIND DNS to add/remove addresses and dynamic IP addresses is kind-of critical for me.

    Appreciate any help!

    I am not a dhcp user but, looking in yast software management, it is seen that dhcp server is available on 15.3

    yast Info after dhcp search says:

    4.3.6.31-6.6.1-x86-64 from Update repository with updates from SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 with priority 99 and vendor SUSE LLC <https://www.suse.com>

    I don't have it installed but it looks to be available. Hope this helps.

    Thumbs down Re: No DHCP?

    Hmm, this was doing the recommended safest update method I've used over the years - off-line via ISO image/USB stick
    Yes it did remove DHCP server (with no option in package list or patterns to avoid) and a lot of other stuff that later had to be manually installed, plus recovering their config files:
    • ISC DHCP server
    • Squid
    • Syslog-ng was changed to Rsyslog
    • Hostapd
    • Sendmail
    • GCC

    ...to name some key packages
    Not the smoothest of SuSe upgrades, and I've done a few!
