I've just installed Centos 6.3 and I'm having trouble with my eth0 connection.
After I installed Centos 6.3 there was no ifcfg-eth0 file, so I made one.
inside my eth0 file I have:
DEVICE=eth0 IPADDR=xxx.xxx.x.xxx NETMASK=xxx.xxx.xxx.x ONBOOT=yes BOOTPROTO=static HWADDR=xx..... NM_CONTROLLED=no
When I run the cmd
# service network start
it brings up the loopback interface and the eth0 interface. When I enter ifup eth0 it says 'file exists'.
I can't ping to this box and it has no ethernet connection. What am I doing wrong here?
