At: Changing the metric of an interface permanently I can see there is a solution, that when if geting IPs via DHCP, you can set metrics per interface, so a given one could come up later.

But for SLES12 (client side, not DHCP server), I cannot see the /etc/dhcpd.conf.

Original issue is that an interface, which should be used as default gw comes up too late, and the routing will be screwed.

The question: how to set the metric for a DHCP interface on client side to be faster than the other ones?

Or maybe there are some DHCPARGS on client side?

UPDATE on Apr 15: Tried with:

echo "METRIC='50'" >> /etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-...

Didn't changed the metric in an "ifconfig" output after ifdown/ifup.

Also tried:

# cat /etc/dhcpcd.conf
interface ...
metric 50

Also didn't helped. "..." is the interface. Maybe it can be changed via Wicked?
