Re: [Q] how to set virtual IP on AS 4

Thanks for the response, Ray.

I'm familiar with the use of each, but I'm searching for a document which details the technical differences. One such example; if you create an IP alias with iproute, you will not see the IP address listed with ifconfig, you must use 'ip route show' to see it.

The only reason for my post was a long shot-in-the-dark request looking for a specific document which I have seen in the past.

Thanks again,

Do any of you guys use the iproute2 package to add IP aliases?

  ip addr add xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx dev ethX

I'm trying to dig up some documentation that details the difference between using ifconfig and ip without success. Any insight from the community?

Well, I'm no expert with iproute2.  There is a fairly detailed man page of
course... but if you're looking for examples, why not check out Red Hat's?
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup and friends all use iproute2.
