DHCP Server fails on autoinstall

This document (3074162) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.




After configuring a DHCP Server with AutoYaST you get the following error messages during the autoinstallation:

Error This server needs at least one configured network device (besides loopback) for its proper function. Configure one. YaST will quit now.


You have two posibilities to add these option:

1. Edit the XML file manual.

Change the tag:

to e.g.:

  • eth0

2. Use a reference profile in YaST as basis from the current host.

  • Start AutoYaST with the command# yast2 autoyast
  • Goto Tools ->Create reference profile
  • Select [x] DHCP Server
  • Press [Create]

Additional Information

The AutoYaST module doesn't include the option allowed_interface to the XML file.
