I have a linux ubuntu 12.04 machine that was migrated from virtualbox to esxi. I can configure the networking using ifconfig, route add and /etc/resolv.conf and that all works fine. Also I edited the /etc/network/interfaces file with the correct networkconfig.
But still when I reboot the machine the IP address stays what it was. But the netmask turns to 255.255.255.255 and the defalt gateway and the nameservers are lost. When I check th
My /etc/network/interfaces file looks like this:
iface eth0 inet static address 10.11.1.5 netmask 255.255.254.0 gateway 10.11.1.254 dns-search company.be dns-nameservers 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
Any idea what the reason can be?
