View Full Version : [ubuntu] restart networking doesn't run interface commands

December 7th, 2012, 10:27 AM
I have a number of secondary IPs configured using the up parameter in /etc/network/interfaces. I noticed that if I just do "restart networking", those secondary IPs are not added. However, if I restart the system, the commands are run and the IPs are all assigned to the interface as expected.

Here's an example interfaces file (my real IPs are sanitized):

iface eth0 inet static
address x.x.57.145
broadcast x.x.57.191
gateway x.x.57.129
up ip addr add x.x.57.97/30 dev eth0 label eth0:0
down ip addr del x.x.57.97/30 dev eth0 label eth0:0

What do I do so that up commands are run and my changes take immediate effect, aside from rebooting? The machine I'm working with is running Ubuntu 12.10 server x64.
