Bug Description

Need to configure the first network interface like this, but didn't find a way to set it manual and also auto guess the name of the first interface unless special cloud image is made.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet manual

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet6 auto

source /etc/network/interfaces.d/*

Thanks for filing a bug. cloud-init doesn't easily allow this sort of configuration at this time. We should support that configuration.

Changed in cloud-init:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Triaged
