I have avahi installed on an ARM based board. I have my eth0 configured to
DHCP and eth0 also has an Alias IP "". The idea behind having
an alias IP was an installer can always connect an Ethernet cable between
his laptop and board and talk to board.

When I start avahi, it logs messages .........
avahi-daemon 0.6.22 starting up
WARNING: No NSS support for mDNS detected, consider installing nss-mdns!
Loading service file /etc/avahi/services/MY.service

Server startup complete. Host name is MY0008F80201CE.local. Local service

When I try to discover the board, the host name most of the times resolves
to and not to the dhcp IP ( I would like to
discover or resolve to DHCP IP or both IP's. How can I achieve this? Is
there any configuration not to discover 169.* IP's?
