Description Mark Van-Kerro 2004-08-11 08:52:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; 
SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
When I have multiple virtual network interfaces up and running and 
want to down a particular interface, this works fine unless you down 
the first virtual interface that starts. In the case of shutting down 
this it shutsdown all virtual interfaces.

This only happens when the virtual interfaces are assigned different 
IP addresses on the same network / subnet

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create several virtual network interfaces (E.G. eth0:1, eth0:2, 
2.Start them individually in numerical order (so that eth0:1 starts 
3.Once all virtual interfaces are up, shut down the first virtual 
interface started (E.G. eth0:1

Actual Results:  All virtual interfaces shutdown

Expected Results:  only the interface intructed should have shutdown

Additional info:

This happen on multiple interfaces and only affects virtual 
interfaces on the same network.

Not that you would do this, but to prove a point

E.G. eth0:1 addr
     eth0:2 addr
     eth0:3 addr
     eth0:4 addr

eth0:1 has not effect on 0:2,0:3,0:4. However 2,3,4 will all shutdown 
if the first virtual interface started shutsdown. This could be any 
of them.

Comment 1 Radek Vokal 2004-09-08 09:03:23 UTC
Didn't appear with 

# ifconfig --version
net-tools 1.60
ifconfig 1.42 (2001-04-13)

Can you check with rawhide version?

Comment 2 Christophe Quintard 2004-11-19 14:46:54 UTC
Exactly the same problem with redhat7.2 and redhat3.0WS.
The problem does not appear with redhat7.3 or redhat3.0AS.

Comment 3 Francois Richard 2004-11-22 14:47:03 UTC
Same problem with Redhat 9.0
Same problem with Fedora Core 1, 2 and 3
Same problem also on Suse 9.0

For every distrib:
$ ifconfig --version
net-tools 1.60
ifconfig 1.42 (2001-04-13)

Comment 4 Radek Vokal 2005-07-20 11:08:07 UTC
The problem is fixed in rawhide net-tools-1.60-55
