Disable/Enable DHCLIENT in Yocto

Aashik Aswin

Hi Developers,

I am trying to add DHCLIENT package to my Yocto Zeus Build.  However If we include "dhcp-client" package in yocto, the dhclient takes the priority  over existing Busy box udhcpc and starts during the init. 

My box basically uses UDHCPC for getting the IPs and my intention is to install dhclient only on a need-to-use basis.

is there a way where we can prevent DHCLIENT to run on init unless invoked manually ? 

Please let me know 

Thanks in advance,
