FreeBSD 8 / Xen has a stubborn dhclient.


Note this system first sets the interface’s IP up correctly as defined in /etc/rc.conf.

And then in the next step it starts looking for a dhcp server.

Mounting local file systems:.
Setting hostname: waxu0013.
Starting Network: lo0 xn0.
lo0: flags=8049<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 16384

Clearing /tmp (X related).
Starting local daemons:DHCPDISCOVER on xn0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 5
DHCPDISCOVER on xn0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 12
DHCPDISCOVER on xn0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 15

edit:

Funny enough after some more testing I found the dhclient in the (obvious) /etc/rc.local
