I have two servers, “ServerA” and “ServerB”. Using SLES SP3.
ServerA is the main server with LTSP running
I have used DD to image the drives from ServerA to ServerB. ServerB now boots and is identical to ServerA,and all is well. I want to use ServerB as a backup server, so if ServerA goes down I can bring server online. Obviously in order to put them both on the same network (to keep the user files updated on a daily basis) I need to change the IP address and the host name of serverB (currently is the same as ServerA).
I have done the following (copied from my notes):
The following file, binds the ethernet MAC address to ETH0 or ETH1 etc.. We need to delete this file so that a new one is automatically created during reboot with the correct MAC address bound to ETH0
Delete this file:
make sure to change the static IP address in the following files
give the system a different host name in:
Reboot the system
When I change the HOSTNAME, the server will boot, bring me to a log in screen and then after I log in it will just sit there with the green background and a cursor. What files am I forgetting to change..
