eth0 problem

Hi there

I'm having problems with network config, there is no eth0 device in the system.

ifup eth0

gives me this :

root@lb2:~# ifup eth0
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.eth0.pid with pid 134993416

Re: eth0 problem

Hello,

can you post the output of the command

ifconfig -a

Please provide some additional informations about the hardware that you're using (server type etc...).

Best regards,

Re: eth0 problem

Just what kind of machine is this?

"netfront" indicates it might be a Xen virtual machine.

You should check that virtual networking is configured correctly in Xen "domain 0" i.e. the host for the virtual machines.

If you are not the administrator of the VM host, talk to that person.
