I have been struggling with this for quite some time now:
I have a samba-server (FC4) with 2 network cards. Naturally, they shall have different names and this is the problem - both names are tied to same IP.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ and /etc/sysconfig/networking/defaults/ ifcfg-eth0 and eth1 clearly states:
In smb.conf I have netbios aliases and wins server = x.x.x.x
Pinging these two names from server returns correct IP's, but from any other workstation in any subnet both are assigned to 172.16.1.6
The two subnets use the same DHCP, DNS and WINS-server.
So how on earth do I get one name per nic???
