ipoib interfaces do not automatically come "UP" when ipoib module is loaded
Last modified: 2013-10-09 21:13:45 EDT
Description of problem:
ipoib interfaces do not automatically come "UP" when ipoib module is loaded. An ifup ib0 command or a "service network restart" is required to bring it up.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. load ipoib module
ib0 interface does not automatically come up.
In previous RHEL 6.x releases the ib0 interface came up on module load.
This has been reported by our system test group. Reporting it to disclose it early before independent verification by the development group.
Hotplug support (i.e., bringing them up as they appear randomly post-boot) for network interfaces in /etc/init.d/network has been removed - if you want to manage interfaces on hotplug, install a network management daemon such as NetworkManager.
I think you can close this bug. Thanks for the explanation.
