Re: IPV6 manual addresses not being applied to interface


By experimentation I discovered activate earlier today. I assume it puts the desired configuration into some cryptic actual configuration files.

Does this transfer always require an activate? Or would a simple reboot work?

I searched a lot of online anecdotes and tutorials and activation wasn't something that was obviously pointed out as required. Perhaps this could be included in some FAQ or tutorial?

I have configured the interface using the nmtui tool and restarted

It appears the upper case output below is what I have and the lower
case is what I have asked for.

How do I get what I have configured to apply to the interface?
by (re)activating the profile or reapplying the changes.

Actiavting a profile in nmcli, is done via one of

  nmcli connection up "$PROFILE"
  nmcli connection up "$PROFILE" ifname "$IFNAME"
  nmcli device connect "$IFNAME"

Reapplying the changes is done via

  nmcli device reapply "$IFNAME"

Or course, with other NetworkManager client tools (nmtui) that is
different, but the underlying functionaliy is the same. In case of
nmtui, that doesn't allow you to do reapply. Instead, reactivate the

systemctl restart NetworkManager
Restarting the daemon doesn't apply changes to the networking. It is
usally wrong trying to do this. When you restart the daemon,
NetworkManager tries *NOT* to do any changes to the network.
