IPADDR2 not handled correctly with or without NetworkManager in RHEL 6.3 final
Last modified: 2016-11-25 07:56:19 EST
Description of problem:
when adding IPADDR2 and PREFIX2
IPADDR2 = 10.0.5.5
PREFIX2 = 24
it is not getting added to the interface. ip addr show does not show the additional ip address.
even without network manager this doesent work.
even without having setupped dhcp on the interface it doesent work.
even with completly configuring 2 ip addresses through nm-applet by choosing manual mode it does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open nm-applet config setting for eth0
2. change to ipv4 tab and set to manual config
3. add 2 ip addresses with prefix/netmask
ip addr show and only see the first one assigned
ip addr show and only see both ip addresses assigned
It also doesent work for standard ifcfg handling using 6.3 systems. Created the ifcfg file manually and started it by ifup... still not working.
Reassigning to initscripts.
Can you please paste here yours ifcfg file?
NOTE: biosdevname is set to 0 so eth0 really exists and works in that system.
NOTE: IPADDR2 also doesent work if the first ip is assigned statically.
You can't use dynamic configuration and static together, but with statically configured ipaddr it works fine:
[root@localhost network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-eth0
[root@localhost network-scripts]# ip addr show eth0
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
link/ether 52:54:00:22:bf:86 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 10.0.5.4/24 brd 10.0.5.255 scope global eth0
inet 10.0.5.5/24 brd 10.0.5.255 scope global secondary eth0
Do you have any example of configuration with static ip, where this issue occurs?
