Description js 2000-07-13 11:37:51 UTC
When the command "/etc/rc.d/inet.d/network start" is issued. IP aliases as 
defined in ifcfg-eth0:0, ifcfg-eth0:1 etc. isn't started, when linuxconf 
for security reasons have been removed. This is properly due to a bug in 
the ifup-aliases script ?

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2000-07-13 15:29:39 UTC
ip aliases created with linuxconf require linuxconf to run.

To flag it as an alias not created by linuxconf, add
"DEVICE=eth0:0" (or whatever) to the alias definition.

Comment 2 js 2000-07-14 07:54:35 UTC
Linuxconf, was removed before the IP alias files was created. All virtual hosts 
files ifcfg-eth0:0 et was written by hand !

Anyway, the trick with a DEVICE=eth0:0 solves the problem. Thanks !
