LIN6-9866 : Unable to check the status of the dhcp server on wrl6

Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Userspace


Most services can be queried for their status via the scripts in /etc/init.d/ or using the "service" command. This is not working in WRL6 for the dhcp server. In previous versions (at least in WRL4) it worked.

Steps to Reproduce

Using any platform project try to obtain the service status:

root@qemu0:~# service dhcp-server status
Usage: /etc/init.d/dhcp-server {start|stop|restart|force-reload}

root@qemu0:~# /etc/init.d/dhcp-server status
Usage: /etc/init.d/dhcp-server {start|stop|restart|force-reload}

This was observed using the intel-x86-64 BSP with CGL rootfs but is applicable to all projects.
