SLP problems

I had noticed lately that rconip wasn't showing as many servers as it should. After I did the round of libc and openssh updated Tuesday, all of the WUF servers were absent from the list. Poking around showed that the WUF servers were not discovering the DA's. I wasn't sure how this could be, since SYS:ETC/SLP.CFG was correctly setup, and we had the right scope.

Turns out that my SLP DA Discovery Options parameter was not set correctly. It was set to DHCP-only, which that particular subnet has no DHCP. Setting it to query the static file and use Multicast (which we have turned on) got things reporting again.

I wonder how it got unset?
