I don't want my machine to contact dhcp
 
Hi,

I have assigned static IP to my machine but, somehow, NIS entries are getting chenged due to /sbin/dhclient-script

ie,

cat /etc/yp.conf
# generated by /sbin/dhclient-script

Please help me. I do not want my machine to have changes from DHCP.

I have enabled static Ip in below given format,

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=10.50.100.255
HWADDR=00:60:97:94:52:69
IPADDR=10.50.100.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=10.50.100.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet

Check whether you have dhclient running on your system by ps. you can also check messages.

No DHCP client is not running on the machine.

bash # ps -ef | grep dhcp
root 5347 3740 0 16:26 pts/0 00:00:00 grep dhcp
bash # /etc/init.d/dhcpd status
-bash: /etc/init.d/dhcpd: No such file or directory

Moreover, I do not have DHCP server details, otherwise, I would have myself removed entry for my machine from dhcpd.conf file.

Is there a way I can get to know the DHCP server IP?

Are you sure? the dhcp client executable is called dhclient, and does not match the string you passed to grep.
