I am in the process of a ubantu (12.0.4) installation, using drbl, two network cards (one on board Intel 82579 lm and one a realtek RTL8169/8110 card). I have been looking for hardware precautions for this type of installation and did not find a hardware list. I would like to know the specifics of the network cards Eth0 and Eth1, as far as the port configurations for the switch. I know that one has to get to the internet and one has to be an internal dhcp, not on my regular internal data network. I am having problems getting both nic cards to work properly. I get them to work for some time then they stop working. I did try switching the eth0 and the eth1 back and forth, no luck to keep them running. What are the parameters for the switch setup or better the recommendations?
Is anyone familiar with clonezilla and how to get it set up properly. We did have another server working that is not working properly, so we decided to go to some new hardware and start fresh as the other was over 6 years old. So I am using a HP Elite desktop 8300, with the onboard nic and bought a realteck nic card for the second.
I am looking for someone who is familiar with this ubantu installation and using the drbl, and hopefully familiar with Clonzilla installation.
Hope there is that special person out there. thank you so much
