Adding red interface causes problems


(Bill ) #1

I’ve been running a VM of nethserver with only a green interface for a while now with no issues. Shop has been provided by my tplink router. My new server has multiple Ethernet ports so I’d like add a red interface and take advantage of some of the additional features of nethserver. When i add the red interface i start getting errors. Is there a specific way to do this? Is this possible?
NethServer Version: 7.5
Module: network

Are you going to replace your tplink router? You may have to change the DNS servers NS is using and enter the gateway in the red interface settings instead of the green interface.
If you use virtualization on the new server, are the physical interfaces mapped to the virtual ones?

Which errors do you get?

No, just add and configure, it should be possible.

For DHCP on red interface:

When first activating the red interface I get the following:
Task completed with errors
S71nethserver-dc-condrestart #13 (exit status 256)
Adjust service nsdc #38 (exit status 1)
start service nsdc failed!

After reboot I see accounts provider general error.

clicking on users and groups gives me: Account provider generic error: SSSD exit code 1
and users and groups are all empty.

Hi Bill,

please have a look at the output of
db networks show => shows your network config
and
journalctl -M nsdc -e => shows the journal of you nsdc container (-e jumps to the end)
