Error: Failed to configure network: exit status 2


When configuring a Cloud Connector VM via the interactive console, administrators are required to apply the network settings before they take effect. Upon doing so, the Cloud Connector VM will run a validation test to ensure proper network prerequisites are met for VM to cloud connectivity.

In the case that Cloud Connector VM Network Settings are set to "Manual" and there is no available DHCP service running on the network, the following error may be observed:

Failed to apply configuration
Failed to configure network: exit status 2




If the error message is observed when the Network Settings are set to "Manually", then the following should be validated:

  1. Verify if the Network Settings parameters ( IPv4 Address, Subnet Mask, Gateway, Name Server ) are valid. In case of any typo's in these parameters above error is expected.
  2. Clumio Cloud Connector VM's virtual network adapter should be connected to the proper network with DNS services running and reachable.
