I disabled NetworkManager and enabled network. Set static IP on one of the Ethernet ports, the other port is disconnected. When i do service network restart i get the following error:
Restarting network (via systemctl): Job for network.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status network.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
Receheck configuration gives the following error:
Default IP address is set to **.***.***.***, but the detected external address is actually ***.**.***.***. This is typically the result of being behind a NAT firewall, and should be corrected on the module configuration page.
I am able to access internet from the box and searching for "ipaddress" shows the correct public IP assigned to the box on google.com
But, still the server is inaccessible through its hostname!
On cmdline, as root, hostname -f gives ns03.bislinks.com
SELinux status is disabled.
