Ticket #7505 (new defect)
ifdown eth1 required before reboot or shutdown or else subsequent boot hangs at eth1 configuration
|Reported by:||gstanden||Owned by:|
If you run only one virtual network adapter, specifically a NAT'd adapter, dhcp, startup is fine. But if you try to add a second adapter, specifically, a Host-Only adapater, dhcp (or static), boot will usually hang when the OS tries to configure eth1 (the Host-Only adapter).
I found that the only workaround was to remember to do an "ifdown eth1" (the host-only adapter) before each reboot or shutdown of the CentOS vm. If you do a manual"ifdown eth1" then the reboot is consistently successful, and both eth0 (NAT) and eth1 (Host-Only) are successfully configured at boot and bootup is successful every time (I have tested over 10x boots so far completely successful as long as "ifdown eth1" is executed before shutdown). Thanks
