Fedora forgetting network configurations
I have a linux server running fedora 3 and it has one wired ethernet card.
I have eth0 setup so that it gets an IP address via my DHCP server and I have eth0:0 setup so that it uses a static IP that I assigned. They both have config files in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts directory.
Most of the time both addresses work fine. But leaving the machine alone for a while I will come back, or try to shell into the eth0:0 IP and it will not work. I will get in via the other port and when I run "ifconfig" it shows no eth0:0 running. (During this time the eth0 configuration always works fine. )
To get it back I just run "ifup eth0:0" and then it works fine for a while until this all starts to happen again. Right now I'm solving the problem by running a cron job to start up the eth0:0 every 2 hours, but this is clearly not how I would prefer to solve this problem. Does any one have any idea why this could happen? Is my ethernet card going bad?
