New interface and routing
My company was running some DR tests with RH 4.x, 5.x and 6.x machines. What they were doing is configuring a new interface to allow remote access to the servers on a 192.168.x.x network. My manager tells me that when they did this none of the servers were accessible until they brought down the newly configured interfaces.
It sounds like a routing issue to but I don't know as I was not present when they were working on these systems.
I know that the last interface brought up during boot is the default gateway, what I am wondering is if configuring these extra interfaces and bringing them up would cause the routing table to be changed? The person who made the changes isn't present so I cannot ask him what all he checked during the issue so I do not know if they checked the routing tables when they see this issue.
Thank you for your feed back.
