Bug Description

After installing maas, maas-dhcp & maas-dns on Precise using the latest U.C.A, the package isc-dhcp-client is no longer present and needs to be re installed.

If the system's NIC is configured to use DHCP, it becomes unreachable by network since the DHCP configuration cannot be completed

Packages installed :

ii maas 1.4+bzr1693+dfsg-0ubuntu1~ctools0 Ubuntu MAAS Server
ii maas-cli 1.4+bzr1693+dfsg-0ubuntu1~ctools0 Ubuntu MAAS Client Tool

Hi Louis,

When you installed MAAS from the CA, did you also upgrade any other packages? Because this means that if maas installed and the installation process removed isc-dhcp-client, then maas would be conflicting with isc-dhcp-client which would be causing the removal. But, this is not the case, so I'm wondering whether any of the dependencies is.

Could you please paste the apt install log?

Hi Andres,

I'm able to reproduce it systematically using the following cloud-config script. The end of the install kinda fails because of the maas prompt window, but it still installs correctly and you can see the isc-dhcp-client removed.
