Package: isc-dhcp-server
Version: 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze9
Severity: normal

Hi maintainers,

after an automatic update of the isc-dhcp-server package from
squeeze-lts sources, the dhcp-Daemon does not start properly. The server
runs with Squeeze (6.0.10).

The reason is that the default Location of the Config-File moved from
/etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf in Version 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze8 to /etc/dhcpd.conf
in 4.1.1-P1-15+squeeze9.

Services which automatically start&stop this daemon (like corosync)
would not work properly anymore.

It could be verified by checking the content of the dhcpd-File in the
appropriate *.deb Archives with:
# strings dhcpd | grep "dhcpd.conf"

My workaround is to set a softlink between old and new location.
# ln -s /etc/dhcp/dhcpd.conf /etc/dhcpd.conf

Kind regards,
