Hi,

I am wondering if anyone knows how to get my PE 1950 running VMware esxi
to show up in IT assistant.  I installed it
with the Dell customized iso that downloaded from VMware but I have not
been able to get it to show up with ITA.

Thanks for the help,


--Brian

I have a pair of Dell r610s, each of which has an on board quad port
Broadcom network card.  Both are running a recently patched CentOS 5.4.
I
set each server up to use DHCP to get an IP address for eth0.  On server
1,
I set eth3 to 192.168.253.1.  Everything is working as expected.  I can
access the server via either address.  Note that both ports are
connected to
the same switch.

Now I physically move the network cord from eth3 on server1 to eth3 on
server2.  I turn on server 2 which gets its eth0 address from DHCP.
eth3 is
set to use the same IP that eth3 on server1 was, 192.168.253.1.  However
eth3 on server2 fails to come up, issuing this error:

Error*, *some other host already uses address 192.168.253.1.

So at this point, I have server1 that only has eth0 physically connected
to
the network.  I have server2 that has eth0 and eth3 connected to the
network.  If I issue an arping 192.168.253.1, I get back the MAC address
of
eth0 on server1.  Then I do the following steps.

server2 # ifup eth3
Error*, *some other host already uses address 192.168.253.1.

server1 # ifdown eth3
server1 #

server2 # ifup eth3
server2 #
server2 # ifconfig eth3
eth3      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:21:9B:99:1B:F2
          inet addr:192.168.253.1  Bcast:192.168.253.255
Mask:255.255.255.0
....
server2 # ifdown eth3

server1 # ifup eth3

server2 # ifup eth3
Error, some other host already uses address 192.168.253.1.

Physically disconnect eth0 on server1 while eth3 is configured and eth3
on
server2 comes up with no error.

So my question comes down to how is an interface that is not physically
connected to the network having this effect?  Why does the connection to
eth0 seem to be influencing the eth3 settings?

Got questions or need more info, let me know.

Howdy, I'm still getting the error with the key. I just ran all of these

In this respect, Linux treats IP addresses in a host-based rather than
interface-based fashion. A Linux host owning a given IP address will
respond to an ARP request for that address on any and all interfaces
that receive the request, supplying the MAC address of the responding
interface. This behavior can be modified by enabling arp_filter for the
desired interfaces.

      echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/<netdev>/arp_filter
