Package: isc-dhcp-server
Version: 4.3.4-1
Followup-For: Bug #815319

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
     Upgrading isc-dhcp-server
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     apt -u dist-upgrade
   * What was the outcome of this action?
     dhcpd won't be started after boot process or using service isc-dhcp-server
   * What outcome did you expect instead?
     Running dhcpd service

I can confirm this bug.

After upgrading isc-dhcp-server it won't be executed after boot process or
using $ service isc-dhcp-server restart.

The solution to make it work again, I found from another bug report, is the

In /etc/default/isc-dhcp-server




INTERFACESv4="eth0 virbr0"

Now $ service isc-dhcp-server restart works again.

But I guess this is just a workaround and thus it is not possible to let dhcpd
listen automatically to all interfaces by leaving INTERFACES variable with "".

Thank you very much for your time and reading this!

With many greetings,

Adrian Immanuel Kieß
