dhclient and link local address

view story

http://serverfault.com – I am doing a "dhclient" on one of the network interface which is in UP state. There is no DHCP server running in the network on which this node is present. So the questions are Will dhclient try to set up a link local address for that interface. If the above is the behaviour of dhclient is there any configurations I need to setup to make this happen. Please advice on this and suggest some links/manpages to study this. (HowTos)
