qfe0 will not hold the netmask setting through reboots
Posted on 2006-04-29
I have this F**** crazy issue, we use ldap to authenticate user and app daemon. LDAP client is running through the qfe0 adatper to comm. with the LDAP server. The only problem that the damn adapter is not holding the correct netmask setting. Its supposed to be FFFFFc00(255.255.252.0) but instead it changes to ff000000(255.0.0.0) on every reboot, yet the IP address remains static!. We have check the /etc/netmasks file and the correct setting seem to be in place but it still happens, any thoughts? i have never seen thsi problem before
have been up to 24hr already, dealing with SUN ...and there not sure what it is, they are thinking of deleting and creating the /etc/netmasks and /etc/hostname.qfe file again, dont see how that will really help?
please help guys...i wish i could give a trillion points for this one + lifetime supply of hotpockets
