I was having some problems with cumulus, I needed to change an IP address of an interface without loosing connectivity, so I had to do the following:
First you have to add a secondary IP address to the interface, and confirm like so:
ip addr add 192.168.1.10/24 dev eth0 ip addr show eth0
eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP link/ether 44:38:39:00:11:aa brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.1.5/24 scope global eth0 inet 192.168.1.10/24 scope global secondary eth0
Now we have to setup the interface to where it will promote the secondary IP address when we remove the first like so:
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/promote_secondaries
** PRO-TIP: Change
all to have it work on all interfaces.
Lastly we need to remove the original IP address and confirm like so:
ip addr del 192.168.1.5/24 dev eth0 ip addr show dev eth0
eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc noqueue state UP link/ether 44:38:39:00:11:aa brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 192.168.1.10/24 scope global eth0
And we’re done, yay!!!
