Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 11163
"network restart" and "ifup eth*" behave differently from bootup
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:13:35 EDT
After a normal bootup all interfaces including ip aliases have a
corresponding /32 route. After "/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart" only the
primary address for each interface has a /32 route.
after further investigative tweeking, any ifup-eth*:* that contains a
DEVICE="whatever" line gets a corresponding /32 route on ifup. If this is by
design I'm curous why . . .
additionally, when using multiple addresses in a single ifcfg-eth#:# file,
bootup is identical to reloading the network.
it doesn't affect the behavior of the system, it's just curious i guess.
