Kickstart fails to start network
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:32:55 EDT
While doing a kickstart install, the network doesn't come up for %post, so all of our network based commands fail. We are using the following
network --bootproto static --ip 192.168.6.231 --netmask 255.255.255.0 --gateway 192.168.6.1 --nameserver 192.168.6.253
The IPs have been changed to fake ones, but that's the same line. The host doesn't have DNS entries, and isn't going to get them. If it can't
bring the net up automatically, i'd be perfectly willing to have the script do so at the beginning. However, all attempts to bring the net up by
hand using ifconfig, netstat, etc. have failed. Please help, as it's becoming somewhat urgent and rather troubling. If we ignore the errors and
reboot the machine, we do end up with functioning networking. Puzzled am I.
For your time I in advance give to you thanks
You should be able to ifup eth0 in your post section.
