Network settings gets overwritten upon reboot

Bug #277691 reported by Rizwan Rafique on 2008-10-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
network-manager-applet (Ubuntu)

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

auto eth1

iface eth0 inet static

auto eth0

I will follow eth1 in this report.

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

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
