I had to setup 3 identical Fedora Core 4 systems for a custom application training session.
All 3 machines have identical hardware.
So I got the first machine configured as per the requirements.
Then I used "Ghost for Linux" to make an image of this PC on a ftp server.
I used the "Ghost for Linux" boot CD to put the same image on the 2nd machine.
Machines 1 and 2 are DHCP clients and they are working pretty much as expected.
But ONLY on the 2nd machine, I keep getting this warning (on the console) when I reboot:
"Shutting down interface eth0: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring."
Ok, yes the mac address of the 1st machine was inherited by the 2nd machine via the ghost imaging.
And it is being ignored. But I would like to fix this warning.
How do I fix eth0 on the 2nd machine so that the inherited MAC address goes away
and therefore the above warning goes away?
