Description H. Peter Anvin 2013-07-10 05:04:08 UTC
Description of problem:
To run dhcpd on a restricted set of interfaces, the list of interfaces has to be specified on the command line.  This list of interfaces has in the past been located in /etc/sysconfig/dhcpd, but in Fedora 19 this file is completely ignored by the systemd unit file.

***This information cannot be provided in dhcpd.conf***

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to run dhcpd on a subset of interfaces, perhaps because you have another process wanting to use the DHCP ports on the balance of interfaces

Actual results:

Comment 1 Tomáš Hozza 🤓 2013-07-10 06:43:41 UTC
We dropped using EnvironmentFile in dhcpd.service file in Fedora 18. If you need
to use custom dhcpd.service file you should copy the whole service file from
/lib/systemd/system to /etc/systemd/system and edit it there. Service files in
/etc/systemd/system have higher precedence over service files in
