NethServer Version: 7.9.2009
Module: CentOS Installer
While installing nethserver a couple of times i ran over a specific problem, which made me re-install, because i thought i’d made a mistake.
In installerwindow presented from CENTos, where i define my time zone etc. i also set my static IP adress for a ethernet nic. Interestingly enough, it created instead an ip of 192.168.1.1. Since i didn’t want to fiddle around in centos, i decided to reinstall, and make sure, i entered the correct setting. It turned out, that it was again 192.168.1.1., the third time same story, but i didn’t check that one before i entered
yum install whois
Since my IP adress range is NOT 192.168.1.1/24, i got an lengthy error message. By reading closely i saw that i could set a temporary IP with the command:
This did the trick for me, then i could move on to installing. It seems, that with the very first install, it DID set the correct IP address, i entered in setup config, but the later installs didn’t work.
I thought, it might make sens if somebody else gets into this. (or myself, when i already forgot about this one :-))
