I have troubles to figure out how my boot process - boot order best should look like. What I have:
- A VirtualBox needing ‘Host interface’ networking (vbox0)
- A network bridge ‘br0’ to connect vbox0 to eth0
- eth0’s IP address configured to 0.0.0.0
- two samba shares that should be mounted on bootup
Now what I have at the moment:
- br0 and eth0 are being configured from ‘/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-br0’ and ‘/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth0’
- stuff for vbox0 is being setup in /etc/init.d/networking at the bopttom of the ‘start)’ case.
- the samba shares are in /etc/fstab but do not get mounted (because the network isn’t setup properly I assume - since it used to work before i started ‘playing’ with VirtualBox’ network settings.
Does anyone know how I can get it all done properly on boot? Shoud I boot eth0 as ‘normal’ dhcp client and get the samba shares mounted ‘the old’ way and once the machine is booted up setup br0 and recionfigure eth0 to 0.0.0.0 ? Is there another way?
Does anyone have any hints or suggestions?
