All servers including PL8000 and ML330
RedHat Fairfax Beta 2
During Install, the NIC can be configured for static IP, DNS Server,
Gateway, etc., But upon booting up, the NIC is inactive by default.
Requires manual activation in RedHat Fairfax Beta2.
-->Install the OS
-->Configure the NIC for static IP, DNS & Gateway
-->Reboot the Server upon completion of Install
If the NIC was configured (either automatically by anaconda, or you explicitly
specified it) to come up, then this is a bug. Are you certain the "active on
boot" check-box was enabled?
AFAIK i left whole Anaconda's screen with NIC configuration untouched, but
ifcfg-eth0 contain ONBOOT="no" after fresh installation (I'm using DHCP
autoconfiguring). Used Custom installation method.
Fixed in CVS.
