change metric with ifconfig command
Last modified: 2013-06-23 23:04:43 EDT
Description of problem:
We would like to change the metric on the nic but the command does not
work on redhat.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 3 (Taroon Update 3)
ifconfig eth0 metric 2
Steps to Reproduce:
SIOCSIFMETRIC: Operation not supported
Should change the metric on eth0 to 2
It works fine with 'add route' command.
Red Hat's current Bugzilla version is 2.18. I am moving all older open bugs to
this version. Any bugs against the older versions will need to be verified that
they are still bugs. This will help me also to sort them better.
Red Hat Bugzilla is now using version 3.2 of the Bugzilla codebase and therefore this bug will need to be re-verified against the new release. With the updated code this bug may no longer be relevant or may have been fixed in the new code.
Updating bug version to 3.2.
