NethServer Version: 7.4.1708 (Final)
Module: none (base configuration)
I’m setting up a Nethserver for the first time on a HP ProLiant DL20 Gen9 server. I’ve installed on hardware, not a VM. For reasons I don’t want to get in to right now I needed to install CentOS 7 first [CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core)] and then install NethServer.
This went well.
The server has two physical network interfaces, so I have one as my “green” interface and that is connected to my LAN. The other is my “red” interface and that is connected to the Internet. So far so good.
The problem started when I tried setting up Active Directory (samba) which needs it’s own IP address and creates a bridge interface. This setup went bad but that’s another topic. What matters here is that the bridge interface (br0) DID get set up correctly – at least I can see it under Configuration -> Network and if I inspect the files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. But the problem is that the “red” interface no longer comes up automatically if the server reboots. I do not see a setting in NethServer’s GUI for enabling/disabling the device. The device appears there and it’s status (DOWN) shows, but I can’t change it. So I log in via SSH and do an “ifup eno2” and this solves the problem until the next reboot.
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno2 shows this:
So my question is, does NethServer bring up the interfaces or do I need to figure this out in CentOS?
Thanks in advance for any help.
