I'm trying to upgrade some old Fedora 13 servers to Fedora 14 following Fedora's docs. The yum commands ran very quickly and seemingly without error. However, when I rebooted after finishing the upgrade to Fedora 14, I found the server was completely offline and I couldn't SSH into it. Logging in manually revealed that the eth0 interface had not been brought up automatically.
My ifcfg-eth0 looks like:
DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static DEFROUTE=yes DHCPCLASS= DNS1=10.157.10.12 GATEWAY=10.157.10.1 HWADDR=00:0D:12:34:56:78 IPADDR=10.157.10.18 IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=yes IPV6INIT=no NETMASK=255.255.255.0 ONBOOT=yes OPTIONS=layer2=1 PEERDNS=yes PEERROUTES=yes TYPE=Ethernet UUID=5fb16cd0-0bb1-8ffb-45f1-d6edd65f3e02
sudo ifup eth0 brought up the interface correctly, and the server appears to have no further issues with the upgrade. However, since I've specified
ONBOOT=yes, why is the interface not being brought up automatically?
