Few days back we turned off the servers to remove the dust. All of the servers are working fine after switching on.
But one server(ubuntu 9.04) is not able to boot to GUI mode and GUI mode will cuts off in the middle while booting to GUI and monitor shows to check display.
In the same server, the IP address is frequently changing itself to dhcp even static IP address given in /etc/network/interface. Here is the output of those files.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
iface eth4 inet static
There are only two NICs. Although it is showing eth4 instead of eth1 if run
The cable is connected to eth4 and no one cable is connected to eth0. Everything will be working fine only for 1 or 2 days in ubuntu 9.04 server. We are not coming to know when and why eth4 address is changing to dhcp.
Please help me masters in fixing up GUI mode and permanent static IP to eth4.
