This was caused by the new seabios booting much faster than the old
BIOS. Thus causing the dhcp request to run afoul of the 15 second
default delay in the 'new bridge' traffic.
By default, a new bridge on RHEL defaults to a 15 second delay before
any traffic can pass over the new bridge.
This is a 'convention' used to prevent bridge loops from causing network
By setting the delay to 5 seconds, everything works perfectly.
To display the current setting:
# brctl showstp br0 | grep -i delay
forward delay 14.99 bridge forward
To set it:
# brctl setfd br0 5
Thanks to RH support.
Great response on this one, and saved our bacon!
