I'm struggling to setup virtual eth interface on Suse 12
When I run:
ipconfig eth0:1 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.255.255.0
Output from ifconfig is as expected:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:01:02:03:04:05 inet addr:10.0.0.1 Bcast:10.0.24.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 eth0:1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:01:02:03:04:05 inet addr:10.0.0.2 Bcast:10.0.24.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
However this setup is not persistent. When the system is restarted I can no longer see eth0:1
I tried adding the IPADDR1='10.0.0.2/24' to the /etc/sysconfig/network/if-eth0 config file and that seems to be working fine BUT I cannot see eth0:1 in the ifconfig output ?
am I missing something?
