Updated to Version 3.8 and can't login

Updated to Version 3.8 and can't login

SSHD accepts my password but then hangs at "Last login: Wed Sep 13 21:30:02 2006 from"

This occurred during a yum update after upgrading my release, installing the new kernel and rebooting.

I got kicked out of sshd after seeing the following during yum update:

telnet 100 % done 85/476
tux 100 % done 86/476
ntsysv 100 % done 87/476
rpmdb-redhat 94 % done 88/476

After that I get the message I first told you about but can't seem to login to the server :(


Just to confirm it is up and appearing available but I can't connect :(

Escape character is '^]'.
SSH-1.99-OpenSSH_3.6.1p2


I got the server rebooted physically (hoping the server would come up fine) but now I can't get in and the server is not up and I don't have physical access :(


Well all the crashing and corrupted kernels that I was getting was due to a problem on the VMWare host server.

I was moved to a new server and everything worked after upgrading to the new kernel and then booting into it. After I did yum update which updated hundreds of packages the server didn't come back.

It turned out the network didn't come back and I caught the following message in /var/log/messages:
[quote:0f1aca9d69]
"Sep 15 18:25:33 localhost ifup: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring." [/quote:0f1aca9d69]

[i:0f1aca9d69]I guess the physical device address was different than what was entered into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0[/i:0f1aca9d69]

I believe commenting out the "HWADDR=" line that specifies a MAC address could have avoided this.

[b:0f1aca9d69]I still don't quite understand how those new packages would have changed my NIC settings but it is kind of scary if you ask me![/b:0f1aca9d69]
