Problems with DHCP network configuration

We encountered a strange bug in systemd-networkd that causes some troubles on systems which are using DHCP to configure the network interfaces. Because of unknown reasons the systemd-networkd service may crash, e.g. when a new network configuration is applied.

You can workaround by rebooting the system or by running

systemctl restart systemd-networkd.service

several times until

systemctl status systemd-networkd.service

reports the service is running. You can alternatively run the command

omv-salt deploy run systemd-networkd

If everything fails, use static IP addresses until the bug has been fixed upstream by the Debian project.
