Description Arne Hüggenberg 2003-07-31 16:03:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1)

Description of problem:
If ONPARENT is set in an alias config file then aliases following this one wont be started, even if ONPARENT is yes or unset

Also it would be nice if the ONPARENT option actually were documented outside of old bugzilla bugs, so ppl dont waste hours fixing problems wich are already fixed

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create two alias interface configs e.g ifcfg-eth0:0 and ifcfg-eth0:1
2.add ONPARENT=no to config for eth0:0
3.restart network

Actual Results:  notice that ifcfg-eth0:1 does not get set up

Expected Results:  ifcfg-eth0:1 set up

Additional info:

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-09-04 03:36:32 UTC
Adding ONPARENT="" in ini_env() in ifup-aliases should fix this, it will be in

Leaving open for the documentation bits.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-06-07 20:05:13 UTC
ONPARENT is documented as of 7.47-1.
