I have a weird issue on Debian 8 on a provisioning workflow,
the steps are :
- The debian is DHCP configured (from the PXEBoot)
- VLAN Change on ESX
- ifdown on eth0
- reconfigure /etc/network/interfaces with static address
- ifup on eth0
- ping -c 1 gateway
The gateway ping fails, but if you retry the ping it always succeed.
do you have any idea on why those first ping fail ?
No issue met on Debian 7 or RHEL 6 (maybe linked with systemd ?)
(I've tried added a 5 seconds -or 10 seconds- sleep before ping)
