Second IP address (yes another question)

Okay I have read around the forums, and I did cakers post on the bugs on adding new ip addresses, but I have a problem.. Everytime I reboot my node, it wont bring up the second ip address, unless I type this:

ifconfig eth0:2 netmask up

Then I dont even have to restart my network or anything and it works.. Help me out I dont what I am doin wrong. Its sort of became an issue since TP started messin up.

Which distro are you using?

If you're using Debian, the /etc/network/interfaces file controls what interfaces get started at bootup. You could add something like:

auto eth0:1
iface eth0:1 inet static

and it should come up automatically.

Thanks, now it looks like if there is ever an a power outage when the servers come back on everything will be O.K. Thanks a lot.
