System: Debain Squeeze
Problem: cannot restart networking (
/etc/init.d/networking restart) without error.
I used and edited a sample configuration from my provider and now wanted to add IPv6 support. But before adding v6 I'd like to get rid of the following error:
# /etc/init.d/networking restart Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable again some interfaces ... (warning). Reconfiguring network interfaces...SIOCADDRT: File exists Failed to bring up eth0. done.
# ip r l x.y.132.64/26 via x.y.132.65 dev eth0 x.y.132.64/26 dev eth0 proto kernel scope link src x.y.132.68 192.168.1.0/24 dev vboxnet0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.1.1 default via x.y.132.65 dev eth0
btw: Networking works just fine - I can reach the server and from the server I can reach the internet. Only
networking restart is not satisfied.
