Full Version: Dhclient Keeps Dying!
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I have a serious problem. I'm running redhat 8.0.
Recently, dhclient keep stopping on its own, after every few days. What could be the possible reasons? Also, only root can start/stop dhclient, right?

check /var/log/messages

see what was happening at the time when your dhcp client stopped

and tell us what the actual error message is, so we can help you

I've got 2 servers, dhclient on both machines went down twice each. The consistent message just prior to those incidents is:
eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex

Below are some logs:
Dec 12 08:10:44 soloho ftpd[3934]: wu-ftpd - TLS settings: control allow, client_cert allow, data allow
Dec 12 08:10:45 soloho ftpd[3934]: FTP session closed
Dec 12 09:04:16 soloho kernel: e1000: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex

Strange that it shows "NIC Link is Up" when I don't see a NIC Link went down entry in /var/log/messages. Those 2 machines are supposed to be up and connected 24hrs.

Any ideas??
