View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot get IP address during install from DHCP

June 4th, 2008, 10:54 PM
Hello, I have Googled this one and have not found anything that works/helps.

The situation is that I am installing the latest Ubuntu server edition on a Proliant DL 360 with 3x Intel network cards. I come to the bit which lets me choose my network adapter and it fails to get an IP address via DHCP

After it fails, on my Windows 2003 box I check my DHCP leased addresses and it is filled with "Bad address"

If I manually configure the IP settings on Ubuntu i have no network connectivity when Ubuntu is installed.

As it stands now Ubuntu is not installed as I am waiting for more light on the issue.

Many Thanks

I can't think of a reason why you would need to get a DHCP address during install anyway. That can be configured afterwards in the /etc/network/interfaces file.
