So I was going to do update a droplet from FreeBSD 12.1 to 12.2. As a precaution, I shut down the droplet first to do an offline snapshot. Upon rebooting the droplet, I no longer have any network. vtnet0 is “active” but doesn’t have an IP4 address, certainly not the one that DO says is assigned to the droplet. I can’t ping the IP from the outside, nor can I ping anything (220.127.116.11, etc) from inside the droplet.
It’s important to note that I have yet to make any changes at this point. All that has happened was the reboot and snapshot.
I found old posts referencing a /etc/rc.digitalocean.d directory with the network .conf file symlink but I don’t have such a directory. But I don’t know if this is current info as the posts were 4 years old.
