Novell Filr 1.0


  • Deleted eth0 from Network devices.
  • Hot swapped good NIC in for bad NIC.
  • Swapping NICs makes new NIC eth1 instead of eth0.
  • After NIC changes, eth0 is gone, can no longer access admin interface on port 9443.
  • Jetty log shows error: ERROR -
    Unable to determine IP address for network interface eth0


Edit Network Devices, Network settings, and change the NIC from eth1 to eth0


The 9443 currently only listens on eth0.  Removing eth0, prevents access to 9443.
