Problem description

This update provides several corrections to the dhcp-server init-script (/etc/init.d/dhcpd) in ldap mode:
  • Adds "ldap" and "ndsd" services to the Should-Start and Should-Stop init info tags, causing start of the OpenLDAP- and eDirectory-Server before DHCP-Server (#275592).
  • Corrects to copy properly directories specified in the DHCPD_CONF_INCLUDE_FILES sysconfig variable into the chroot jail (#181212).
  • Adds copying of /etc/openldap/ldap.conf and additional base libraries into the chroot jail (#241113).
