Static IP working but resetting to Dynamic Over Night
This week at work we migrated our network to a dedicated T1 hard line, which really rocks since there are only four of us.
I migrated all of our servers to a cisco switch and updated the /etc/network/interfaces to look like this
When I do this and run /etc/init.d/networking start everything works flawlessly, I receive the static ip address and our servers work perfectly; however, sometime over the evening the ip address resets to a dynamic ip, just as if I had the following:
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth5 inet static
iface eth0 inet dhcp
In the morning to fix the issue all I have to do is run
and the correct static ip is running again.
Does anyone have any ideas of what could be causing this issue? It's sort of frustrating to have server access go down in the middle of the night and have to do this first thing every morning.
Does it have something to do with the included broadcast line? I've browsed some other interfaces files and not encountered it yet; however, I included it because it was provided by the line.
