Thread: Network issue running 13.3 as guest in Parallels

  1. #1

    Default Network issue running 13.3 as guest in Parallels

    I am running 13.3 without X (so no NetworkManager). So on install of 13.3 the network works fine. After I update all the packages the network no longer works.When I run dhcpcd eth0 suddenly it starts working. You can see below the log from when network starts up it seems to be related to dhcpcd not running by default? Why would that be so? I did notice it doesn't seem to be configured to start automatically?

    Code:
    network.service - LSB: Configure network interfaces and set up routing
       Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/network.service; enabled)
       Active: failed (Result: exit-code) since Tue 2014-03-25 18:20:12 CDT; 5min ago

    A time traveler from the future? Or did you mean 13.1?

    If you changed the network configuration, maybe you did so in a way such that it didn't think it was necessary to run a dhcp client. It's hard to know without more information on what you did.

    If you assigned an IP address, then it probably doesn't run a dhcp client.

    You can try restarting the network service with
    Code:
    systemctl restart network.service
    openSUSE Leap 15.3; KDE Plasma 5.18.6;

    Does it maybe work when you set the interface to start "on boot" instead of "on cable-connect"?

    First, whether you run any kind of X server or not has no bearing on whether you might run network manager or not. NM can run from the command line just fine.

    As for what you're observing, it may be related to something I've been seeing for the past month or so which is unrelated to the virtualization technology...
    I strongly suspect that something is starting up out of order, and it doesn't seem to be consistent. It will happen inconsistently regardless of Desktop (it's happening in my text-only, minimal X and less often LXDE Guests) without any pattern.

    So, recently the first thing I've been doing on bootup is to check whether an IP address has been configured
    Code:
    # ip addr
    If there is no IP address then I simply restart networking
    Code:
    # systemctl restart network
    And then check for the IP address again.

    Your right I cannot time travel so really I meant 13.1. I guess I was under the impression that NetworkManager was not the right solution for a server?

    This issue actually started before I touched any network configuration. I just let it auto-configure everything. After running updates it always gets into this state.

    It is resolved though now. Setting it to start on boot-up instead of cable-connect solved the issue. Thanks wolfi323
