VLAN-interface comes up slowly
Hi there,

I succesfully configured an OpenSuSE 11.2-System to use the internet via ETH and to connect to our NFS-Fileserver via VLAN.
This is working fine so far.
If rebooting the system (the file ifcfg-vlan** is working fine) the ETH and VLAN interface come up, but it seems that establishing the routing information over the VLAN takes too long:
The user home directories reside on the NFS-Server (autofs also working fine), but if one tries to login to the system (no matter if graphical or via ssh) fast after it comes up, the mounted dirs are not available.
I'm very sure the problem is connected with the route (set up via ifcfg-vlan** file): In one case I got via ssh on the machine and read about my missing home dir. Immediate after that I found missing route entries.
I hope the explainations are detailed enough.

Thanks for all suggestions.



For further details, here is my ifcfg-vlan**

sadly noone answered here.
I got some more details after enabling "debug-logging" in autofs - maybe this can help.

are from my /var/log/messages indicating, that the lookup for the nfs-server is not working.
The entries repeat lets say up to twenty times until it works.

Any suggestions?
