Hi Indra,

I took ArchLinux for a spin earlier today and noticed that the default DHCP client is "dhcpcd"
which maintains the lease file in a binary format.

Our choices:

1) See if we can move from dhcpcd to ISC DHCP or
2) Dump the lease file contents and update the cloud-set-guest-password script.

Arch Linux uses systemd instead of the traditional sysinit. The script will need
an overhaul to support systemd also.

[root@ARCH1 var]# cat /var/lib/dhcpcd/

[root@ARCH1 var]# pacman -Qi dhcpcd
