Title: Finer checks for a syslog reload need in dhcp client scripts

openSUSE-11.2: Done
Requester: Desirable
Projectmanager: Desirable

Requested by: Karl Katzke (karlkatzke)

Syslog reloads every time the DHCP lease is renewed, even though the
"change hostname via DHCP" option is turned off in the configuration.
Finer control requested in bugzilla, bug 466198, by Karl Katzke.
Would be a finer control / finer checks (hostname, ip address changes)
desirable to implement?

- syslog does not get right hostname when dhcp is used
(novell/bugzilla/id: 116466)
- DHCP renewal causes syslog-ng reset even if host name has not changed
(novell/bugzilla/id: 466198)

I second that a better check is needed. I manage a network with 25
servers, all getting "fixed" addresses from our dhcp. This way we
manage all ip adresses from our central database.
The current behavior was really annoying and so we have created a small
patch for dhcpcd-hook. I would like to upload it somewhere but I am
unsure where to proceed.

Please attach the patch to the bug 466198, thanks!

#5: Marius Tomaschewski (mtomaschewski) (2009-09-03 11:05:04)
Added attachment Patch checking for hostname changes to decide if
reload is needed (sysconfig-dhcp-avoid-syslog-reload.fate305702.diff)

+ #7: (mtomaschewski) (2009-10-12 10:47:17)
+ Merged into sle11-sp1 branch (sysconfig-0.71.21), submit request ID
+ 2139 => SUSE:SLE-11-SP1:GA.
