Dhclient already running -exiting error?

P: 25
Hi,

I configured a linux machine running Cent OS 5 on it. It gets it's IP address, gateway through DHCP. But I am not able to connect to the internet. So I did a
"service network restart".

But I got the following error message:-

shutting down loopback interface OK
bringing up loopback interface OK
shutting down interface eth OK
bringing up interface eth:
Determining IP information for eth0....done OK
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0..dhclient is already running -exiting
exiting.
failed [FAILED]

I would appreciate if you could please help me fix this issue.

Thanks,
Sangith

use following command to get the dhclient's process id.

ps -eLF | grep dhclient

after that kill that process using command "kill -9 <process id>"
Now try again..
