ifconfig ALLMULTI option


how ca i set this otion permanently at startup?

I did in a special startscript
ifconfig eth0 allmulti

But it doesnt work correctly, the database server which needs this setting cannot connect to the multicast socket.

When i start the database engine manually (when thue system is spun up)
it works.


For a global configuration (applied to all interfaces) put your script into /etc/sysconfig/network/if-up.d/ .

For a per-device config, add a POST_UP_SCRIPT= line (and possibly others, e.g. PRE_UP_SCRIPT ) into the ifcfg- file.
