View Full Version : [ubuntu] virtual network interface not coming up on boot

September 22nd, 2010, 10:25 AM
I have a problem on several of our servers: After upgrading to ubuntu server Lucid 64bit, sometimes some of existing virtual interfaces (eth0:0 etc.) don't come up after reboot even if it is configured to start up automatically in /etc/network/interfaces. This issue does not happen after every reboot though. There is no relevant information in the log files or at least I cannot find anything. When I run "ifup eth0:0" manually, then the interface starts up without any problem. Has anyone seen this behavior too?
Thank you
