Like the ops-install script, boss-install sets up passwordless sudo for

dhclient - If you don't control the public network to which boss and ops (and
perhaps tipserv) are attached, your network admins may want you to run dhclient
on those interfaces (and you may want to as well so that your boss
/etc/resolv.conf contains the correct nameserver returned by dhclient, to avoid
configuring it statically). However, boss runs its own nameserver that
ops and the experimental nodes must contact to resolve internal names, so you
must get dhclient to correctly write /etc/resolv.conf (i.e., boss must be the
first nameserver). The easiest way to solve this problem is to add the
following line to boss's /etc/dhclient.conf:
prepend domain-name-servers 127.0.0.1
and add the following line to ops's (and any other non-experimental nodes, such
as tipservs) /etc/dhclient.conf:
prepend domain-name-server <bossip>
where <bossip> is replaced by a valid IP address for your boss. Make sure to
restart dhclient on these machines since dhclient will continue to overwrite
/etc/resolv.conf incorrectly.
##### Step 11 - Reboot boss
Okay, go ahead and reboot boss now, and make sure it comes up okay.
