Recently I upgraded the default DHCPd RPM from Novell to a direct download from When I did that I had problems with the line:

option slp-service-scope true "default';

I had to add:

option slp-service-scope code 79 = {boolean, text};

before this line:

option slp-service-scope true "default";

This could be something Novell changed in the code, or maybe just something that was left out of version changes from ISC. It took me a bit to find this though.

Maybe this can help someone else.

If you choose to go through this option, I also suggestion copying these two files before uninstalling the DHCP RPM:
