Hi,

I also have the following problem,

If I have my NICS bonded on the server, then Novell CIFS won't start

CIFS is not currently running on this server.

/var/log/cifs/cifs.log

reports

Nov 10 12:43:13 testoes2 CIFS[9415]: CRITICAL: ENTRY: No ethernet
inteface is configured, configure an ethernet inteface and start CIFS
Nov 10 12:43:13 testoes2 CIFS[9415]: CRITICAL: ENTRY: Fetching IP from
ethernet interface failed, CIFS server going down

Now ethernet is working, it is just that I have set up a bonded device.

If I remove the bond then CIFS works...

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Peter
