Description js 2000-07-13 07:37:51 EDT
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 11:29:39 EDT
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 03:54:35 EDT
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 !
