I'm trying to configure a tap interface using systemd-networkd configuration files. I created the files:
with the contents:
tap_test.network: [Match] Name=tap_test [Network] Description=TEST tap interface Address=192.168.2.100 tap_test.netdev: [Match] [NetDev] Name=tap_test Kind=tap
Then in restarted the
sudo systemctl restart systemd-networkd.service
As expected, running
ifconfig shows the new tap interface. HOWEVER, when I tried to alter the ip address in the configuration file
tap_test.network to end with
101, then tried to restart the
systemd-networkd once again, no change coul'd be seen when I ran
ifconfig again (the ip address remains the old one).
I also tried to shut down the interface with
ifconfig tap_test down and then restart the service, it didn't help either.
How can I make systemd-networkd reload the configuration files?
