sh /etc/netstart interface counter intuitive behaviour with multiple inet aliases 6.4 and 6.3

Tom Smyth
Hello,

Im running a router with multiple ips on an interface using the
inet alias

issue:
when commenting out configured  aliases on hostname.if
after running sh /etc/netstart vio4

if you run ifconfig vio4 after the restart of the interface
the old aliases that were commented still appear in ifconfig output ahead
of the first ip address configured in the /etc/hostname.vio4 file.

ifconfig  before commenting  out   10.134.91.253  in hostname.vio4
is listed below
vio4: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        lladdr 16:2c:a4:f2:b4:e3

        inet 10.134.91.245 netmask 0xfffffffc broadcast 10.134.91.247

This behaviour is counter intuitive  as it is different to sh /etc/netstart
behaviour on the configuration of  inet addresses
im wondiring is this a feature or a bug ...  or me misunderstanding the
use of netstart script to reset / reload the configuration of an interface

Thanks

It's a known behavior of how alias are implemented.  I agree it is
confusing.

Re: sh /etc/netstart interface counter intuitive behaviour with multiple inet aliases 6.4 and 6.3

Florian Obser-2
In reply to this post by Tom Smyth
One possible workaround is putting
-inet as the first line in /etc/hostname.vio4
It will nuke all v4 addresses and re-add them.

Depending on your usecase this might work for you or it might melt
down your whole network ;)

Re: sh /etc/netstart interface counter intuitive behaviour with multiple inet aliases 6.4 and 6.3

Tom Smyth
Hi Florian,

i had the inet address as the first line ...
and then all the inet alias lines were after that...
the behaviour was  as described...
Thanks for the suggestion though

I think Florian was saying you could use '-inet' to remove *all* inet
addresses first, different to what you probably have already.

Maybe something like the following would work to remove any aliases not
set explicitly in hostname.if (with reduced risk of melting the network)....

in hostname.vio4:
!/usr/local/bin/clean_ifaliases.sh \$if

in /usr/local/bin/clean_ifaliases.sh:
#!/bin/ksh
for addr in $(ifconfig $1 | awk '/^[[:blank:]]inet/ {print $2}') ; do
egrep "^(alias|inet) $addr" /etc/hostname.$1 >/dev/null || ifconfig $1
delete $addr ; done

Re: sh /etc/netstart interface counter intuitive behaviour with multiple inet aliases 6.4 and 6.3

Radek
I have tried '-inet' on 6.3/i386 firewall/GW/VPN/etc.. adding 4 aliases (public IPs) and then removing 2 of them. If_driver was vr(4). I did it few times over SSH without any meltdown of the network. Everything seems to work as expected.

$ cat /etc/hostname.vr0
-inet
inet A.B.C.77 255.255.254.0
inet alias A.B.C.76 255.255.255.255 NONE description "Alias76"
inet alias A.B.C.75 255.255.255.255 NONE description "Alias75"
inet alias A.B.C.74 255.255.255.255 NONE description "Alias74"
inet alias A.B.C.73 255.255.255.255 NONE description "Alias73"
