When cardmgr is run in one pass mode with the -o option
and there are network cards present configured for dhcp
the dhcp clients are left running.

The network script should have some way to determine
that cardmgr is in one pass mode and then run the dhcp
client in a similar mode.

ie: get the IP and then exit.

    Which dhcp client are you using, and what's the option for
    having it not run in the background?

    the client at the moment is udhcpc and the option is a -f

    I was hoping to get an environment variable that indicates
    we are in "one pass" mode and have the normal network script
    deal with that.

    Yes, in the current beta, cardmgr passes an environment
    variable ONEPASS in one-pass mode.

    I guess I'll go ahead and close this since the beta has the
    capability you wanted. Since you're already using a non-
    standard DHCP client, this is as close as I can get.
