Hello --

I've looked around in the archives but couldn't find anything similar to
this situation. I have a server that is running Debian (sarge, kernel
2.6.11-vserver) and runs 4 vservers. Two of the vservers are webservers,
which run Apache2. I am having troubles with the vserver named "www" in
that when I add a 6th IP alias, it will not create the interface upon
reboot. And until I remove that 6th definition and reboot again, the
Apache2 server inside of vserver www will not start up, because the
network did not initialize correctly. I have not had any troubles with
adding these definitions until this time.

If I manually do an ifconfig and add the interface by hand in the root
server, then restart the www vserver and it's Apache2 server, then it's
happy. I'm at a loss as to why on reboot, this 6th definition has a

I have it defined in /etc/vserver/www/interfaces/6 and have the files dev,
ip, and name. The IP I'm using is unique and not conflicting with any of
the other device aliases and the name I'm using for that interface is 8
characters long (and shorter than some of the other ones).

If anyone has any ideas, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks much --
