DHCP will not grab ip.



Hey all,

I am having a problem with a brand new install of Fedora 9. This
machine has two nic's, eth0 and eth1. They are both . We currently
have eth0 plugged into a router, had eth1 plugged in earlier to try it
as well but we have this problem on both nics.

Basically, on install we specified that both nics were to be dhcp, and
to come up on boot. But neither of them get an ip on boot. I know that
it's not a problem with the cable, as we plugged it into a different
machine and it works fine. I don't think it's a problem with the nics
as I can't see both of them being toast on a new machine.

ifconfig eth0 up does nothing. I've gotten someone local to the server
to try dhclient eth0 and then tail /var/log/messages. We see
DHCPREQUEST, a bunch of DHCPDISCOVER lines and then end with a "No
DHCPOFFERS received" message. ifconfig never shows either interface as
having an "inet ..." line, but they get an "inet6 ..." line. I know
it's not a problem with the dhcp server because it's our isp's, and
our other machines can grab an ip fine.

I've shut off Networkmanager (service NetworkManager stop) and started
the network (service network start).

service network start outputs:
Bringing up loopback interface [OK]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... failed. [FAILED]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth1... failed. No link available.
Check cable. [FAILED]

Our /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 looks like...

DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes

Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Laura
