Version 7.4 (Fully configured)
I changed the LAN IP address last night, and broke the system
but thanks to ZFS and snapshots, I recovered the system
The system is running OpenLDAP with 5 users, webtop and normal gateway type systems. WebTop “died” and the system was very unresponsive.
I wish I’d seen this post before I started:
My guess is that I’d broken the LDAP server and that took WebTop down with it.
Should we be able to change the LAN IP address once the system is configured?
If not, please can a big label be added to the network tab saying “don’t change the LAN address”.
For those who are wondering, I’ve set up NethServer in a fully virtualised environment using 192.168.1.1 as it’s LAN address. The NethServer is to replace another CentOS server, which also has LAN address of 192.168.1.1. I changed the NethServer LAN IP to 192.168.1.150 so I could run both gateways on the same network and then transfer the IMAP data across using imapsync. Once I’d moved the IMAP data across I was planning to shutdown the old gateway and move the NethServer LAN IP back to 192.168.1.1.
