Description

the work around is this:

yum clean metadata
yum -y update hda-platform

the problem: hdactl went out live before hda-platform. many systems picked it up first. some machines stayed without DHCPD for ~60 minutes. depending on the caching, maybe more.

what happened was that hdactl could not handle the lack of lease_time variables in the DB and it generated dhcpd.conf files which were syntactically incorrect. so the servers would see this:

/etc/dhcpd.conf line 20: expecting a parameter or declaration
#011max-lease-time ;
                       ^
Configuration file errors encountered -- exiting
