DHCPD Not Starting, Configuration Error after upgrade



  • We upgraded to 2.1-BETA0 (i386) built on Thu Sep 13 21:17:01 EDT 2012 and now we are receiving the following error on DHCPD service start…

    When looking in the /var/dhcpd/etc/dhcpd.conf file, I see the following entry...

    class "" {
            match if substring (hardware, 1, 1) = ;
    }

    I'm assuming this is a bug since it wasn't there before the upgrade.

    JimP's latest commit should have fixed it.
