I tried to configure my ethernet interface on a Debian Wheezy VM, but I've a problem. When I try to restart /etc/init.d/networking, I've no error message.
But my eth1 interface isn't up and when I try to up it with : ifup eth1, it return me :
root@debian-main:/# ifup eth1
RTNETLINK answers: File exists
Failed to bring up eth1
My /etc/network/interface file is :
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet static
Eth0 is my internet interface and eth1 is a local interface. I want to install a DNS and a DHCP server on eth1 to be able to connect client with this VM and give them an ip adress.
