Destination host unreachable.

Postby ustrug » 2017/10/18 23:30:13

I tried to update the

Code: Select all

/etc/hosts
and

Code: Select all

/etc/hostname
and did a service network restart. After that the host got unreachable.
ping says

Code: Select all

destination host unreachable
.
The host is still alive. but looks offline.
How do I remove the changes I did or update something on the host when I'm unable ssh/rsh to that host?

If you cannot login over ssh then you'll have to get a local console session or remote hands support.
