SuSE 9.3: network configuration goes nuts
15/05/2018 15:30
Hi everyone, lately i upgraded from SuSE 9.1 (everything worked great) to 9.3. Rightafter the upgrade, i realized my onboard network controller (nvidia),actually used for internal network (eth0) is useless, because of strangebehaviour (i don't want to describe right now).

So, i installed a new controller (1 GBit) for inernal network (eth1)besides the controller (100MBit) for external traffic (eth2). Iconfigured both with Yast2 and everything worked fine.

But every Bootup will bring up a random configuration. Sometimesinternal controller will be eth1 and external eth2 and sometimes theyare setup the other way around.

What is it, a circus? I tried to configure them with eth1 and eth2instead of the default device name settings of Yast, without success.

Is there a way to have one configuration all the time? What causes thisbehaviour, which is really disturbing and confusing? Thanks,Eric

15/05/2018 15:30 - --------I had the same problem and added the following 4 nameif lines to /etc/init.d/network at the location indicated by the first 3 lines of text. case $ACTION in start) echo Setting up network interfaces: nameif -s foo1 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx nameif -s foo2 yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy nameif -s eth0 xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx nameif -s eth1 yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy Just put the MAC address of the NIC you have in place of the xx:xx and yy:yy bits. No idea how tidy it is but it works so that's how it is staying. -------------Hope this helps

My solution was to use yast to configure the external card via dhcp anduse a static address for the internal network.

Etho and eth1 swap about bur this makes no difference as external is on adefined card.

15/05/2018 15:30 - Thanks, but i do have the same configuration as you described. In somecases my the external device doesn't get an IP from the internet modembox, if the devices changed before (i.E. after a reboot).

The modem is not configurable at all.
