Because if for any reason WAN is down then I can reach the VM trough the
DHCP assigned IP I though

> who knows?

Because this is not the problem, as I mention before I have another VM
running on the same Vmware and all of them has Internet access so the
problem is here with this one at some part but I'm able to find it

Can't reach Internet

I'm having some issues with Internet access from CentOS7 server which is
installed in Vmware Workstation 10.0.3 build-1895310 in Windows 7 x64. At
this point I can't get if the error is on CentOS configuration or it's
another problem so I leave here what I did in order to get Internet working
on that VM.

1) */etc/resolv.conf*
# Generated by NetworkManager

2) */etc/sysconfig/network*
# Created by anaconda

3)* /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno16777728*
NAME="Internet Eth0"

4) ifconfig -a
*eno16777728*: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500

Install Centos 6 x86_64 on Dell PowerEdge 2970 and a SSD (hardware probing issues)

I have a fleet of 2970s and we are upgrading the hardrives on the motherboard SATA ports (A/B not the PERC
backplane) when a "detecting hardware" is performed the system crashes, reboots and gives an E1422 error
code (useless video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhyMeUHJar4).

We narrowed it down to a motherboard BIOS issue, if we remove the SSD or add noprobe to the kernel the
installer does not crash. 

But when specifing "noprobe" it does not appear to have the loopback driver (and likely many more).

ERROR: failed to mount loopback device /dev/loop0 on /mnt/runtime as /tmp/install.img: (null)
INFO: mounting stage2 failed

Next steps, I already lost my vacation to this, I hope to keep my sanity:

Load drivers from kernel boot line?
Blacklist drivers on the kernel boot line?
Serial cable logging of boot?

Thanks now with the solution you give me I'm able to see the network
interface and yes I learn something new today so thanks

This is what I have in .vxm file:

ethernet0.present = "TRUE"
ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000"
ethernet0.wakeOnPcktRcv = "FALSE"
ethernet0.addressType = "static"
ethernet0.address = "00:50:56:2E:E2:45"

Which configuration you need? The one I made at Windows side? The Vmware is
running on Windows 7 (I didn't send here since I don't know if I can attach
images to this list and to not be banned so I omit then)

What about if I didn't see vmxnet3?

CentOS7 Minimal installation on Vmware missing network interface

Hi there, I'm playing with CentOS 7 (don't know if it's recommended at all
have this one as a development server as maybe is not stable enough yet)
and I installed it on a Vmware VM with two network interfaces: one as a
bridged connected directly to the physical network and replicating the
network state and the second one as a host only interface (the one I use to
manage the VM) so after I got the CentOS installed I can see the first
interface but not the second one and I don't know how to enable it. If I
run the command ifconfig -a this is what I see:

eno16777728: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        inet  netmask  broadcast

What I need to do in order to enable the other interface? Also how I change
the name eno16777728 to eth0-internet without get down my server?

mairadb doesn't prompt for user/pass


 I discovered today that CentOS 7 has replaced MySQL with MariaDB. Which is
fine, it's seems really similar. And I was already aware that it was
written by the original team that wrote mysql.

It's cool that the mysql command still gets you in!

This is the version I have:

[root <at> web1:~] #mysql --version
mysql  Ver 15.1 Distrib 5.5.37-MariaDB, for Linux (x86_64) using readline

But for some reason all I have to do is type the word 'mysql' to get me
into the database.

That's ok for initial setup I guess. But once I was in a did away with all
the accounts that either had blank set for the username, and updated all
the accounts to use passwords.

MariaDB [mysql]> select User,' <at> ',Host,Password from user;

| User  |  <at>  | Host      | Password                                  |

why does centos 7 want to install mariadb instead of mysql ?

Hey all,

I just got around to trying out CentOS 7. And for some reason when I
attempt to install mysql-server, instead I'm offered mariadb? I'm using
epel and remi as my repos.

update repo problem?

I'm trying to install the build dependencies for an SRPM using
yum-builddep, and it's telling me that it can't get the repo sqlite
file for updates-source from vault. Any ideas? Something wrong with my
repo configuration?  The only thing I've done that should have touched
the repo configuration is installing epel-release-7-1.noarch.
