Hello, I am configuring a network that'll have multiple DHCP servers
and I was wondering how Linux handles receiving multiple DHCP OFFERs?
More specifically, how does it choose which one to prefer and how long
will it wait for a answer from a preferred server if the other server
answers first? Thanks.
