My Ubuntu server will not accept my static IP assignment. Instead, I keep getting a DHCP lease. Network Manager is not installed. Below is the output of cat /etc/network/interfaces
# The primary network interface auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.128 netmask 255.255.255.0 network 192.168.1.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 dns-nameservers 192.168.1.120 192.168.1.125 dns-domain mynetwork.local dns-search mynetwork.local
Why doesn't Ubuntu accept the static IP assignment? The Interfaces file seems to be ignored.
What is allowing a DHCP lease to be assigned?
