EXTREMELY novice Linux user. I have a CentOS 5.5 server that has two profiles attached to one NIC. Using Network Configuration tab, on server start device eth0 shows active. Device eth0:0 shows inactive and I have to click activate to start. Same NIC, two different address ranges. I have set Eth0:0 to "Activate device when parent device starts" and "Allow all users to enable" but this hasn't fixed the issue.
This is a VMWare VM if it makes a difference.
Also, can you provide me the correct syntax to set Eth0:0 to active using just the command line?
