last week i need the recovery process the first time since my tests before using IPFire.
2 questions came up.
After the installation the installer asks me if I want to install the backup which he has found on the disk.
I said yes and at the end the system reboots.
After the reboot i have a running system but the network configuration was not recoverd. So I had to use “setup” to configure green and red and select the right interfaces.
Im not sure but is this correct?
After the login i can see all the configurations and the services are running as expected.
The problem was, the network clients did not receive a answer from the dhcp server. First thinking was, a problem with not correct network configuration after the first boot (question 1) so I rebooted the system but the problem still exists.
Next step was to onyl stop the dhcp server from the management interface without any changes on the config and then start the service again. Since then the service is running without any problems.
Can someone give me a answer is this is “normal”, “works as intended” ?
My idea was to place a backup of the system to a secure place where someone with no knowledge can in an emergency situation grap the disc and only has to put the disc in and press “yes” .
