Hi Fellow Techies....
I gave a static IP address to my eth1 as follows
iface eth1 inet static
I saved the file afterwords i did the following
Sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/base
and wrote as below
I am getting the below error when I try to down the Ethernet adapter. "/etc/network/interfaces :2: misplaced option
ifdown : couldn't read interface file "etc/network/interfaces"
then I restarted the Server and upon starting I observed the below
Starting configure network devices --- FAIL
Starting configure Virtual devices ---- FAIL
ANY IDEA WHATS GOING ON??
Appreciate all your help as I am literary "dead in the water"
