I'm running dual stack IPv4 and IPv6
The Debian (client) machine has NM disabled
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet6 dhcp
The DHCPv6 server only sends one search domain but I want to use two
I tried adding both of them in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf using supersede,
append or prepend, all of those options appear to be ignored, e.g.
append domain-search "subdomain1.example.org", "subdomain2.example.org";
append dhcp6.domain-search "subdomain1.example.org",
has no effect.
If I run the dhclient manually, I notice these directives work correctly
I used strace to verify that the IPv6 instance of dhclient is definitely
The DHCPv6 server only sends subdomain1.example.org but that is the
problem I'm trying to workaround by using supersede, appaned or prepend
I tried running dhclient with "-v -d" and also looking at syslog and
journalctl and couldn't find any hints about it ignoring or rejecting
these search parameters.
