dhclient - Provides the dhclient ISC DHCP client daemon and dhclient-script.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol which allows individual devices on an IP network to get their own network configuration information (IP address, subnetmask, broadcast address, etc.) from a DHCP server. The overall purpose of DHCP is to make it easier to administer a large network. To use DHCP on your network, install a DHCP service (or relay agent), and on clients run a DHCP client daemon. The dhclient package provides the ISC DHCP client daemon.

- The server's "by client-id" and "by hardware address" hash table lists are now sorted according to the preference to re-allocate that lease to returning clients. This should eliminate pool starvation problems arising when "INIT" clients were given new leases rather than presently active ones. (RHBZ #627572)

- A partner-down failover server no longer emits 'peer holds all free leases' if it is able to newly-allocate one of the peer's leases. (RHBZ #621838)
