Description Jaakko Heinonen 2007-12-27 20:30:00 UTC
/etc/rc.d/netif runs first "ifconfig interface inet x.x.x.x delete" and then "ifconfig interface inet x.x.x.x -alias" for network interface aliases defined in /etc/rc.conf with ifconfig_<int>_aliasX syntax. The second attempt to remove an address results an error.

Fix: Patch attached with submission follows:
How-To-Repeat: /etc/rc.conf:
ifconfig_vr0="inet netmask"

# /etc/rc.d/netif stop vr0
Stopping network:ifconfig: ioctl (SIOCDIFADDR): Can't assign requested address vr0.

(after applying the attached patch)
# /etc/rc.d/netif stop vr0
Stopping network: vr0.
