System is not resolvable by DNS when using DHCP

Bug #329632 reported by Mathias Menzer on 2009-02-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
dhcp3 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

DHCP servers seems not to recognize the hostname provided by Ubuntu Systems. The dhcp-client-identifier is needed with the Systems MAC address. The following works so the System is resolvable via DNS with the hostname:

send host-name "<hostname>";
send dhcp-client-identifier 00:11:08:AD:19:F8;
request subnet-mask, broadcast-address, time-offset, routers,
 domain-name, domain-name-servers, domain-search,
 netbios-name-servers, netbios-scope, interface-mtu, ntp-servers;
