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
iface eth0 inet static
dns-nameservers 192.168.1.120 192.168.1.125
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?
