Hello CentOS list,
On all of my CentOS 5 VMWare ESX3 virtual machines (about 15), after
installing a new kernel and rebooting the machine, the Network script
tries to run dhclient and can't determine the IP info (since I don't run
a dhcpd server... it's a static IP only lan). This also backs up my
ifcfg-eth0 file to ifcfg-eth0.bak and writes a new ifcfg-eth0 that has
dhcpd with no IP info. Copying the ifcfg-eth0.bak to ifcfg-eth0 and
running /etc/init.d/network start or ifup eth0 brings my network back up.
This is an example of what one of my ifcfg-eth0 files looks like...
