After adding 2nd interface to network settings

Created: 18 Jul 2013 | 1 comment

Needed to move server to new IP Address. Added in new IP address as second interface to same NIC (eth0). On reboot the server is not connecting back to the network. Reason I added as second Interface, I was not sure if I would be able to access it once we move it from old vlan to new vlan. Server is running on VM. In watcing from the VM console for start up the server is failing on the eth0 to bring it up. 

Need to know where to find the file is located in order to clean it as it would have two etries both point to same eth0 NIC. 

Using tech bulletin TECH1788956. It says to check the file located in  /etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-eth0. The folder does not exist, I do see a network-scripts folder but see no ifcfg-eth0 file. Need a solution in-order to restore the network connectivity for the server. 

Regards

My friend , Interface2 is eth1 . If you  assign IP Address to interface2 ,it will be applicable for eth1 and not eth0 . 

I have successfully changed the IP Addresses for my universal servers and this is how I did it . I changed them from inside (I think it promted a restart)  and than using Vsphere console ,I changed the VLAN from Old to New so when the Server came online ,it will find the right VLAN and it worked .

In your case ,you assign new IP to interface 2 but maybe you changed the VLAN for eth0 and not eth1 .
