pure vlan interface not brought up
|Reported by:||jgreco||Owned by:|
Short summary: a parent interface used only for vlans is not correctly provisioned. Any interface that has vlan interfaces as children needs to be configured as "up" by the OS.
Bringing up a new FreeNAS on an HP N36L with only one ethernet.
From the console, added vlan interfaces with bge0 as parent.
Configured switching environment to make port tagged.
Deleted the DHCP-provided IPv4 config for bge0.
Added default route.
Upon reboot, bge0 was not in "UP" state. This rendered both vlan interfaces unusable. An "ifconfig bge0 up" fixed this.
The default route was also not installed. I would have thought that that would have been installed since the vlan interface it pointed to was up, but I haven't investigated further. It is showing in the web GUI as the configured IPv4 default interface.
