Determining IP information for eth1 .... failed


Hi Experts

I am trying to install Oracle RAC on RHEL 5 and getting the following error on boot. I am getting the same error from both of my nodes.

... Determining IP information for eth1 ... failed.

Here's output from ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1

[root@mylx1 network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth0
# Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) LAN Controller

Are you sure you want eth0 / eth1 to be obtaining IP addresses via dhcp? It looks like you've defined hostnames with specific IPs in /etc/hosts.
