Thanks.  I take it then that wildcard charaters in matching on
interface names aren't a go :) My further complication is these
systems get their IPs via DHCP (I should have listed that in the first
place, sorry) and some are bonded and some are not bonded, but the
component names of the interfaces in the bond(s) are the same
"namespace" as when they are not bonded.  For example I may have
systems with a bond0 using eth2 and eth3 and some systems just using
eth2.  I *may* though be able to split the config files between such
systems - that remains to be determined and if not is, arguably a
failing at my end.

"Wildcard" - that is listening on INADDR_ANY basically?


It is not a question of half full or empty - the glass has a leak.
The real question is "Can it be patched?"
these opinions are mine, all mine; HP might not want them anyway... :)
feel free to post, OR email to rick.jones2 in hp.com but NOT BOTH...
