Setting ethx configuration takes a long time
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


Hello to all,

I' am having issues when setting UP a simple interface configuration like, description, mtu or even IP address, after the commit causes the interface to takes to long to come back and sometimes don't bring UP again, have you ever had this experience?

All of my access is remote and this is became a problem.

Event Timeline

I don't understand what you mean. If you use the SSH protocol remotely, you should be able to automatically resume the connection within the allowable time of the protocol. However, if the time is exceeded, you may need to wait for the network connection to recover and reopen the SSH connection.

Jack, I' am aware regarding SSH protocol to manage it remotely, I work with, but the point is:

When I do simple commands like this:

set interface ethernet eth0 description "outside interface"
set interface ethernet eth1 description "inside interface"
set interface ethernet eth0 mtu 1500
set interface ethernet eth1 mtu 1500

After commit It tooks at least 30 minutes to come back on operation again and sometimes the interface didn't come back on operation, only with reboot.

I' am looking for more detailed logs to pass here, also I' am downloading the latest release of VyOS.

Please try the latest version of the image, I have not encountered similar problems at present

Maybe I just didn't encounter it. In short, please try the latest version first. If this problem still exists, please provide the detailed configuration and environment information of the error to facilitate the recurrence and troubleshooting of community members

Will do, working on it...let you know as soon as I finished this weekend.

Hi Jack, the problem was solved in two VMs at OCI after I update the VyOS to version vyos-1.3-rolling-202007311330-amd64.iso.

Next weekend I will update at my Bare Metal, but looks like everything is good now.

Thank you
