I suspect you are using wicked for network managing. Since we have wicked

"on boot" works like "a cable plugin". AFAIK this is not considered a bug,
but a feature.

Thank you very much for pointing me to this! I have googled and found
the solution at

I have edited the /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0 file and added the
following line:


Really helpful... That's useful a workaround. I have already search for some
solution some time ago and found nothing... Thank you.

Then I rebooted the machine. Now the eth0 interface has an IP address
and the DHCP server restarts successfully.

So, wicked actually has the feature. But in YaST, you can choose "at
boot" yet is't not really at boot. Sounds like a YaST bug to me.
Should I file a bug against YaST in opensuse bugzilla?

I have seen you already file a bug. I think "onboot" should set the option
above. So everything behaves as in pre-wicked times.
