IP Aliases not working
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
When upgrading from RH 6.0 to RH 6.1 ...
The next thing I noticed was that my "IP Aliases for Virtual
Host" no longer worked. It turns out the scripts are broken
and can't handle ranges of IP addresses (i.e.
220.127.116.11-222). There amy also be other problems with
it, I don't know. My fix for this may not have been the
best, but I was running out of time. Anyway, my fix was to:
1) Save the contents of the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
directory (actually I just renamed it to
2)Extract the contents of the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
directory from my last backup.
3) Copy the network-functions file from the new RH61
distribution into the newly extracted directory.
4) Issue the following command.
Grab the latest initscripts from Raw Hide; this should solve the problem.
