Description Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-06-17 11:44:23 CEST
NetworkManager behavior seems to have changed: An interface with a configured ip address is not picked up and managed by NetworkManager. Thus, no dnsmaq is started, leaving the UCC client without name resolution after booting.
Comment 1 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-06-17 12:09:32 CEST
Fixed by stopping udhcpc at the end of the initramfs script, in order to release the dhcp lease. NetworkManager then picks up the interface correctly.
