Under certain, unclear scenarios (this has come up two-three times, but
managed to pin it down, no matter what), when doing 'ifdown <ipv6-device>'
you get like:
error: 'net.ipv6.conf.sit0.forwarding' is an unknown key
error: 'net.ipv6.conf.sit0.accept_ra' is an unknown key
error: 'net.ipv6.conf.sit0.accept_redirects' is an unknown key
, because the interface has already been deleted. A good (open) question
is, why this
only happens rather rarely.
These should probably be hidden. It can be done with the attached patch.
