Just rebuilt my server after another crash, has been a while, using 12.04 dvd build on 06 Nov, also did an update.
When I try to configure a static network configuration and setup DNS to a separate IP, via the web admin, it breaks the network configuration on a restart, both eth0 and eth1.
Seem to sort out the network issue, by going in the Orbiter and configuring the network settings there, which brings back up the interfaces.
An issue remains, I am not getting the DNS i want set to work to resolve. Checked under the device core "IPv4 Network Interfaces" and all seems correct.
