Isolated Network DHCP Interface error



  • After rebooting my Ubuntu 12.04 Fog 0.32 server, I always manually reset the DHCP using:

    [CODE]sudo /etc/init.d/isc-dhcp-server start[/CODE]

    But for the past two reboots, the command fails and the log generates the error:

    [CODE]Dec 17 11:40:51 host-desktop dhcpd: Not configured to listen on any interfaces![/CODE]

    I’ve attempted to set the interface manually, as per [URL=‘http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/fog-setup-with-2-nics.10241/’]this thread[/URL], but that didn’t work, nor did dpkg-reconfigure.

    Any suggestions?

    [code]update-rc.d isc-dhcp-server disable[/code]

    Then edit the file:

    Add before the exit 0 line:

    [code]sleep 30 && start isc-dhcp-server[/code]

    Restart and hopefully all things will work.[/quote][/quote]

    Thank you for your help. The syslog still reads the same interface error. I looked into previous syslog files, and at one point, it read out:
    [CODE]Withdrawing address record for [IP address] on eth0
    Leaving mDNS multicast group on interface eth0
    Interface eht0 IPv4 no longer relevant for mDNS[/CODE]

    Could any of this have to do with the error?

    Add before the exit 0 line:

    [code]sleep 30 && start isc-dhcp-server[/code]
