Disabled vif interface with "address dhcp" requests DHCP address.
Open, Requires assessmentPublicBUG


If an interface is disabled and configured to request its address from a DHCP-server, the interface will still get an IP-address (at least during boot)
I would expect that the "disabled"-statement would override/disable the dhcp process.

For recreation:

 ethernet eth0 {
     vif 2 {
          address dhcp

save the configuration and reboot

I am trying have a DHCP-interface as a backup interface only to be enabled in failure-scenarios. As of now this is not working, and the interface grabs a DHCP-address during boot.
