Hack #5: Howto Modify network configuration

with 2 comments

LinuxMCE Core (hybrid or dedicated) needs two network interfaces – one for external connection and another one – for internal. If by some reason you have only one during installation the system creates a virtual internal interface – eth0:0. To modify the network configuration when you decided to add a second Ethernet card you have to make simple changes in the pluto_main database. To see a current network configuration run following select command in the mysql shell:

SELECT IK_DeviceData FROM Device_DeviceData WHERE FK_DeviceData=32;

The result should be similar to this:


Just replace eth0:0 to eth1

UPDATE Device_DeviceData SET IK_DeviceData="eth0,dhcp|eth1,," WHERE FK_DeviceData=32;

and reboot your core. After that will should see two interfaces.

  1. Do NOT go poking around in the database manually, that is what the web-admin is for!
