I have problem with adding a phyisical ethernet interface to a predefined namespace , adding that to interfaces file in pre-up/post-up event do not work. It adds eth to namespace, but ip address and LOWER_UP state never appear. Removing namespace in down event doesnt work either, making restart of networking service impractical: it flags it as failed if namespace already exist, in result interface never comes to "up" state.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

#description of other interfaces

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet static
    pre-up ip netns add mynetns
    pre-up ip link set eth2 netns mynetns
    down ip netns delete mynetns
