I am getting this error when I try and connect to Openfiler storage manager. Openfiler was not setup by me, I inherited it, and when I first came into this role ( for about 2 days) I could access the login screen. Now however, I cannot, all I get is the attached error. I also cannot connect usin PuTTY, the server is on however and nothing has changed that I know of.
So, nothing has changed, the server is up and all the details are the same, scanning the range shows that Openfiler IS still on that IP. I have rebooted the OpenFiler server (which also involved rebooting 8 VM’s – so not keen on doing that again) but still to no avail.
I run the below commands and get the below:
[root@blc-san ~]# /etc/init.d/NetworkManager status
NetworkManager is stopped -----Should this be started?-------
[root@blc-san ~]# /etc/init.d/network status
lo bond0 eth0 eth1 eth2 eth3
Currently active devices:
lo eth0 eth1 bond0
I have also run netstat -intpu: see attached
I hope this info is helpful, and thanks in advance!
As a quick update, I lied. The IP is no longer showing on scans and 10.16.46.53 (Openfilers IP) can no longer be Pinged.
It's been a while since I've managed an OpenFiler box, but as you have root access, it should be relatively easy to troubleshoot using standard Linux commands and procedures.
(Swap eth0 for eth1 as well)
This should show the IP configuration for each of those interfaces. Check the obvious - IPs, network mask etc; and also check which interface is connected to the actual network and where at.
You should be able to restart services using the service command, for example:
Also check /var/log/messages for any debugging or error info.
service networkmanager restart
Thanks for the quick reply, i have tried that and ended up with "NetworkManager dead but sybsys locked"
Network Manager needs to be running. Try and remove networkmanager lock file from /var/lock/subsys/
Hi David (I'm assuming!!).
Some info on this setup. The system is set up with an Etherchannel/802.3ad Bond on 2 interfaces - so only Bond0 should return an IP (ie. ifconfig bond0).

Ok, so an ifconfig on eth1, eth2 and bond0
