Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 231558
message from /etc/init.d/network
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:06:01 EDT
Description of problem:
The network script says I should re-run itself:
~$ service network restart
Shutting down interface eth0: [ OK ]
Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ]
SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ]
Bringing up interface eth0:
Determining IP information for eth0... done.
Global IPv6 forwarding is enabled in configuration, but not currently enabled in
Please restart network with '/sbin/service network restart'
[ OK ]
That's of course bogus here since I just ran the script and it causes this message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I added IPV6INIT=yes to an ifcfg-ethX file
2.run service network restart
see message above
Can you attach your full ifcfg file, and /etc/sysctl.conf?
Nothing changed in the sysctl.conf file, standard as it comes with the system.
This is the ifcfg-eth0 file
This is /etc/sysconfig/network:
Ugh, those ipv6 scripts are fun. After enough digging:
IPV6INIT and IPV6FORWARDING are global parameters - they can't be set
per-interface. That's what's causing the weird errors you see - if you set them
in /etc/sysconfig/network, it should behave.
