    2. Hello,

      fantastic instructions! I just have a small problem in my environment, I upgrade from Centos 5.5 to 5.11 using your instructions then perform the reboot, upon startup the server can’t load eth0 and I can’t activate it. To fix I’ve had to remove the NIC settings then restart and add them in again. Is there a BUG that would be causing this? I’ve tested this twice so far on the my test lab.

      Cheers
      Siobhan
