I.e., just to make sure I understand correctly, in order to get what I

to get NM to notice it, or it will do so automagically on the next

There are some alias examples here, FWIW:

And all that's really required is "nmcli con reload", you shouldn't ever
need to restart NetworkManager to get config changes taken into account.

I added this config file but it's not bringing up eth0:0.

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0:0
IPADDR=192.168.x.y   (yes, x.y are numbers)

What am I missing?  Do I need the base ifcfg-eth0 file, too?  (That file
was not created by anaconda).  Or do I need some additional fields because
there is no ifcfg-eth0?  Or do I need to tell NM to bring it up?
