ifreload - reload network interface configuration


      ifreload [-h] (-a|-c) [-v] [-d] [-f] [-n] [-s]


      reloads network interfaces(5) file /etc/network/interfaces or config
      file defined in ifupdown2.conf file.

      Runs ifdown on interfaces  that  were  removed  from  the  file  and
      subsequently runs ifup on all interfaces.

      When  removing an interface (iface section) from the interfaces file
      please make sure all its references are removed as  well.  Similarly
      when  renaming  an interface, please make sure all references to the
      interface are changed to the new name. Renaming an interface in  the
      interfaces  file  results  in  ifdown  of  the  old  and ifup of the
      interface with the new name.

      If you do not wish to execute down on any interfaces, but only up on
      interfaces  that  were  already  up,  please  see the --currently-up
      option below.


      -h, --help
             show this help message and exit

      -a, --all
             process all interfaces marked "auto"

      -v, --verbose

      -d, --debug
             output debug info

      -f, --force
             force run all operations

      -c, --currently-up
             only reload auto and other interfaces that are currently  up.
             This  can  be  used  as  a  non-disruptive  alternative to -a
             because it will not down any interfaces

             Exclude interfaces from the list of interfaces to operate on.
             Can be specified multiple times If the excluded interface has
             dependent interfaces, (e.g. a bridge or a bond with  multiple
             enslaved  interfaces)  then  each dependent interface must be
             specified in order to be excluded.

      -s, --syntax-check
             Only run the interfaces file parser


      # reload all auto interfaces in interfaces(5) file

      ifreload -a

      # reload all interfaces using service command

      service networking reload

      # reload all currently up interfaces without bringing any interfaces

      service networking reload-currently-up
