Everytime this happens i had to reboot my machine via power cycle.
So can any one throw some light on this. I am sure i am being very abstract here.. But please share info if u had faced similar problem of kernel getting locked up, becaus of which ip change.
Yes..VERY abstract. I have never heard of ANY NFS software that changes your internal IP address.
And you say it "shows some error"...how about actually TELLING US what the error is? What version/distro of Linux? On what hardware, in what kind of environment?
"ifconfig -a" will show you the IP addresses...but are you talking about the one on your machine, or the one of the REMOTE machine? How is NFS being used in this picture?
