Description mlewis 1999-11-06 16:16:35 UTC
After installing redhat 6.1 on one of our web servers we
noticed that it was not responding to requests correctly,
after checking, the ip aliases for our server had not been
initialized.  A clean install on another system produced the
same effect (after configuring the aliases using
linuxconf).  The quick solution for us was to copy
ifup-aliases from the package that came with 6.0 (this fixed
both machines)

I checked to see if this had been submitted as a bug, and it
doesn't seem so... which is kind of surprising... hopefully
I'm not bothering you all with something that has already
been brought up.

nevermind, after searching on initscripts instead of ipup-aliases I
found the old bug report... sorry
