After adjusting an IP address or other network configuration, the network interface should be restarted.
In order to adapt the network interface correctly, we recommend the following commands:
ifdown eth0 ip addr flush eth0 ifup eth0
The following actions are performed on the above commands
:1. The network interface is stopped.
2. The network interface is reset (actively configured IP’s are removed).
3. The interface is restarted with the latest network configuration.
Please note that you must establish a console connection via our administration interface when executing this command.
If these commands are executed via a remote service, the connection is interrupted after the first command and the network interface can no longer be started.
