I went looking for valid options in network and I don't think FORWARD_IPV4, NETWORKING_IPV6 or NETWORKING_IPV4 are valid. They don't hurt anything since its just a file included in other scripts, but they don't mean anything either so I took them out. I do have forwarding set in /etc/sysctl.conf and it does come up correctly.
Also when the system comes up check if dhclient is loaded or not.
Run: ps -eaf | grep dhclient
I hope this helps.
dhclient is not running when the system boots with no IP.
After it came up I ran:
That started dhclient and acquired an IP address. Now I need to figure out why it failed during boot.
Other thing I forgot to mention is that I am not running NetworkManager because I don't want it changing my scripts.
