Question Manage Dhclient on RHEL 5

Hi Friends,

Recently install RHEL 5.3 on a Virtual Machine(Virtual Box), but have problems managing the dhclient. It seems that doesn't work very well on RHEL 5.
Someone had a similar problem?

Finally when I restarted my VM, It was so slow to start again and take long time on the screen attached. I'm sure that this problem is because the dhclient, but I don't know what is the reason and how to manage dhclient on RHEL 5.

Is there an over whelming need to use a old operating system
RHEL 5.3 is 4 years out of date
( unless you are paying redhat a lot of cash for backports of security fixes )

in the older 5 series RHEL 5.9 is the current in the old 5 series
With RHEL 6.4 as the current Operating system

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 ( RHEL5 ) in not a free operating system

so you DID buy the required support contract

this gives you access to the red hat knowledge base
that should BE YOUR FIRST stop in looking for a solution
login to the red hat web sit with the credentials you set up when you registered your install
-- you will need to do that to use most of the search
-- this will require a valid support contract with redhat

if i had to guess
the old rhel5 is not finding the bridge you set up for the VM
and the os is timing out on every network program being started at time of boot
( a 5 min. time out )

Hi John VV,

Thx too much for reply, the last that you mention was the problem. My solution was to unable the sendmail utility at start the computer. I used the comannd #chkconfig --del sendmail disable the sendmail at start the computer
#chkconfig --list sendmail ..shows the state of sendmail at each runlevel
#chkconfig --add sendmail ..enable sendmail at start the computer.

In the other hand, you're right I should let to use an older version of red hat, but I only did it with learning objetives. I will start to use CentOS that is similar to redhat. Today I will start my project for install LinuxfromScratch.

My objetive is learn a lot of Linux, be part of the Linux Community, and have the enough knowledge for help another persons who wants to be part of the Linux community.
