Learning VM IP address is not getting assigned
after booting the learning VM,IP address is not showing.
facter ipaddress output is empty.
I had this issue when bridged adapter is set. When it changed to NAT or Host-Only it worked. In case of NAT we can't access from outside. So when I set Host-Only, I am able to access quest from host OS.
ifconfig show eth1 (without address) and loopback interfaces.As per the quest guide, it should show the address after isssuing facter ipaddress_eth0 , but showing nothing. there is no eth0 interface. Bridge network adapter selected for the VM as per the guide. I have tried assigning IP manually, but not able to connect through SSH.Also editted /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0, but nothing worked.
So, I'm being encouraged to get familiar with Puppet at work. So I go to download the Learning VM. That page didn't work. So I contacted several contacts at Puppet. Now I get the .ova and boot it; Now I have followed the instructions and with a bridge connection, no IP is assigned. With NAT or Host-Only, I get an IP but cannot connect via SSH and I cannot connect to the IP via a browser either. So, what should be a simple setup to train puppet has turned into a troubleshooting saga. Not cool.
how about the OS command /sbin/ifconfig? does it show you have an address, did you set an address /etc/hosts ?
I'm having similar problem even when DHCP server is working well.
However, I did fix it by running DHCP client on VM terminal.
I hope it helps
