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:
188.8.131.52-6.6.1-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.
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
- Syslog-ng was changed to Rsyslog
…to name some key packages
Not the smoothest of SuSe upgrades, and I’ve done a few!
