debian virtual networking – four hours and four lines later

So i did this (my blog) and discovered my example network config did not transfer. Eventually i ended up with a config command of

allow-hotplug eth0:1

And it returned to working order, Debian 8 did not appear to need that.

Yep we all be muppets

A full example

auto eth0
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug eth0:1 #<needed per instance
iface eth0:1 inet static
address 10.0.0.1
netmask 255.0.0.0

I added back the the dhcp licence which the debian installer also removed. Oh also watch out for /etc/default/networking.
