I have edited the SuSE Linux ifcfg-eth-id-00...(etc) file and like Red Hat (ifcfg-eth0 file), I now want to run ifdown/ifup.  With SuSE, it is if-down.d and if-up.d, yet nothing works.
What then is the syntacs for these commands?  Do I need to run them?

do you mean  /etc/init.d/if-down.d (which are strange names for files there)?

how about
  /etc/init.d/network restart

ahoffmann, the network restart seems to have worked, I am still checking it out.

Although the if-down.d and if-up.d are there, one can use the ifdown eth0 and ifup eth0.  Now it is okay.  The problem was the physical connection for the ethernet.
