I've noticed lately on my new 14.04 Server that I get the following on boot-up:
Waiting for network configuration
Waiting up to 60 more seconds for network configuration
and eventually followed by:
Booting system without full network configuration
I've read some places that this has to do with the /etc/network/interfaces configuration, and I don't necessarily see anything wrong with how mine is configured, but here it is:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system # and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5). # The loopback network interface auto lo iface lo inet loopback # The primary network interface auto p2p1 iface p2p1 inet static address 192.168.79.249 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.79.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.79.1 188.8.131.52 auto p3p1 iface p3p1 inet static address 192.168.79.252 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.79.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.79.1 184.108.40.206
I do have two NIC's in the system just in case anyone is wondering.
Any help is greatly appreciated if this is something that I need to be concerned about. Thanks!
