Ticket #8450 (closed defect: fixed)
OFW doesn't ask for enough DHCP options
|Reported by:||wmb@…||Owned by:||wmb@…|
|Priority:||high||Milestone:||8.2.0 (was Update.2)|
|Component:||ofw - open firmware||Version:||not specified|

|Deployments affected:||Blocked By:|
For complete network access, OFW needs router and nameserver responses from the DHCP server. Many DHCP servers supply that information in every response, but some only supply the options that the DHCP discover packet explicitly asks for. OFW Q2E17 and earlier don't ask for any options explicitly, so it doesn't get the required information from the explicit-response servers.
