Ubuntu Host Virtualbox guest Networking weirdness
I have a bit of a strange problem with my network interfaces setup to use Virtualbox guests on an Ubuntu 7.10 host. I've adjusted my /etc/network/interfaces to allow for bridging to a static IP on my internal network and bind the tap interfaces to my eth0 through the br0 bridge interface.
iface br0 inet static
bridge_ports eth0 tap0 tap1 tap2
iface tap0 inet static
iface tap1 inet static
iface tap2 inet static
iface eth0 inet static
However, sometimes, not always (maybe every third or fourth reboot of my Ubuntu host), my eth0 main host interface doesn't pull it's IP address. This obviously renders any bridge or tap interfaces lame even though they are assigned the intended IP.
Any suggestions are obviously greatly appreciated!
