Dear XS fellows,

We are currently configuring the XS server for the deployment in
Madagascar and have some issues on the DNS/DHCP.
Could you resume the main part of the DNS/DHCP config on the XS (using
2 interfaces : eth0 for WAN uplink, wlan0 for LAN wifi delivering IPs,
DNS to XOs)
=>We dont seem to have the domain and nameserver propagated to the
/etc/resolv.conf of the XOs
=>Our /etc/dhcp-xs.conf is :

# School server 1 DHCP Server Configuration file.
ddns-update-style interim;
#ignore client-updates;

option domain-name "nosykomba.org";
option domain-name-servers;
option ntp-servers    ;

subnet netmask {
        option routers        ;
        option subnet-mask    ;
        option broadcast-address;
        # this is the whole range we have available - 8K addresses
        # range                 ;
        # instead, we'll save 510 addresses for later.
        range                 ;
        # the other /24s:
        # -> for static IP addresses
        #    for printers, AP management consoles, etc.
        # -> for temporary addresses for
        #    XO activation

        # As this subnet is wired or wifi a/b/g, these lease
        #    times are on the long side
        default-lease-time      10800;
        max-lease-time          21600;

Our best regards,

Xavier Carcelle.
