Bug Description

I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 couple of days ago.
I had a ethernet connection with static IP address. Here is my /etc/network/interfaces look like (it has been like this since ever)

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth1 inet static
address 192.168.254.202
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.254.254

auto eth1

iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.2.2
netmask 255.255.255.0

auto eth0

I will follow eth1 in this report.

I however have a DHCP server running as well that assigns ip addresses between 192.168.254.1 to 192.168.254.199

Upon upgrade to 8.10 I noticed that the network settings were changed to DHCP and eth1 got an IP from the range. I configured NetworkManager for static but no luck. Did /etc/init.d/networking stop/start and it got static.
Reboot overwritten the settings. Had to do /etc/init.d/networking stop/start/restart to get it work.

Not sure what other hardware/software information is required.

Looks to me like this is a duplicate of bug 259214
