Mother Board Change

Hi All,

I have changed the mother board of a DL-580 server. The OS of the server is RedHat ES 4. There are 3 more servers with the same OS and all these servers has oracle cluster configured. Now, as I change the M/B, the MAC address will be changed as the LAN card is embedded with the M/B. Now can anyone suggest me, where or which files I have to edit by giving the new MAC address to make sure the cluster will be OK?

Re: Mother Board Change

Normally the only files where the mac address are registered are /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX.

Probably will be good if you disable kudzu.

chkconfig kudzu off

Re: Mother Board Change

Which cluster suite you are using?

MAC is not quiet necessary for cluster configuration.

be sure that you have exact environment for cluster configuration.

>>> MAC is not quiet necessary for cluster configuration.

It's necessary because you must ensure that the right interface is used as interconnect or the nodes won't be able to comunicate.
