Help with 2 NIC please!!


Hi All,

I got this problem with my server running fedora 5. there are 2 gigabit nic installed and 1 onboard. I have disabled the onboard nic and use 2 nic. when restarting the server, only 1 nic comes up as eth1, but the other one doesn't come up (showing inactive). I have to login and manually activated it. I have save the profile to start when server restart but it doesn't. Any suggestions? thank you.

Do

ls /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg*

see what devices you have as ifcfg-eth0,1,2 etc.

edit the relevant files, you should have something like

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=static
BROADCAST=10.32.24.255
IPADDR=10.32.24.14
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
NETWORK=10.32.24.0
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Ethernet

in your case, the most relevant thing I'm guessing will have to do with ONBOOT=yes
