[rear-users] Ubuntu 12.04 dhcp issue

When booted up from the rescue image you could check the
/etc/rear/rescue.conf configuration file to verify if USE_DHCLIENT was
defined or not.
If it was, check the /var/log/messages file if you see
an error around dhcp? Furthermore, you could check the scripts under
/etc/scripts/system-setup.d directory and search for dhcp startup
sequence. Perhaps it could not find the binary?

Is there a known issue booting
from recovery iso and restoring using ubuntu 12.04 and dhcp? 

6.x and ubuntu 14.04 work fine. 

Was able to determine this by dropping
to a shell and running dhclient eth0 and manually mount nfs share.

After I found this issue I tried again by running dhclient and then
just running "rear recover" manually. 

When I created
/etc/network/interfaces with a static IP it works with no manual
