hi all
getting there as they say but got a an email from my datacenter as regardws to an ipfail-over issue

We have detected that your server ns2264 unnecessarily sending
a large number of requests over the network via its IP failover xxxxxxxIPxxxxxxx
This is due to a misconfiguration.

We ask you kindly to reconfigure the IP failover
xxxxxxIPxxxxxx as soon as possible.
You will find below a sample of queries sent by your server:

after sitting a puzzling over what the hell they where going on about i looked all over and was a tad confused so i went back to them as there as it cannot be right for what i have

they responded with

Hi,
settings are in eth0 ,
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 when you open you will see its showing swap file there.
i noticed there is swap file that might be causing this please delete the swap file

thanks

so back again to the system and looked at

ifcfg-eth0

DEVICE=eth0
BOORPOTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no
IPV6INIT=no
PEERDNS=yes
TYPE=Ethernet
NEMASK=255.255.255.255
IPADDR=xxxxxxxxxx
GATEWAY=xxxxxxxxxxxx
ARP=yes
HWADDR=02:00:00:b0:5e:f1

i also noticed that there was a file in the directory called

.ifcfg-eth0.swp

which is empty no data
am i right in saying they want to be delete one of the above lines of info and remove the swp file totall baffled on this as things have been running fantastic without any changes by me to the datacenter and nothing altered to any of the sites

any ideas please thanxs

Hello :)

Do you not see any websites at all, or is there a specific error message that appears when attempting to browse to your websites? Is the IP address accessible for any service? If not, you can try restarting the "ipaliases" service. EX:

Code:
service ipaliases restart
Thank you.
