Schoolserver can't currently use DHCP

Reported by: wad Owned by: wad
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: school server Version:
Keywords: schoolserver, DHCP, DNS, fedoradev Cc:
Action Needed: never set Verified: no
Deployments affected: Blocked By:


As of build 150, the need for the schoolserver to properly handle external DNS requests (to support ejabberd) has broken support for DHCP assignment of schoolserver address.

The fix for this has two components:

1.) A hook (an extension to the /etc/dhclient-exit-hook currently in place ?) which changes the /var/named/school.external.zone.db file and restarts named

2.) Support for being a DynDNS client added to the school server build, and appropriate modifications made to xs-dev.laptop.org (the nameserver for xs.laptop.org)
