Hi Guys
Recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 Server Lts

However i just came across this error after setting up the static ip Address not sure if this is the reason but i am assuming so; for the present, as when the system boots up it says it is waiting for ip address.

But during boot i see the message:-
"configure network device security 'Fail' " and the system sits there waiting after about 4-5 min it proceeds and i am able to see the Ip Address it is using after login in.

But unfortunately i am unable to log in remotely or ping the system - comes back unreachable.

Any ides as to what the issue may be ? and how to go about resoling it?
