Ubuntu 14.04 network fails to start, cloud init error

Posted June 21, 2019 3.1k views

Hi All,

After rebooting a ubuntu 14.04 droplet earlier after an issue, the networking fails to come up.

I manually restored the network through the console:

ipconfig eth0 up
ifconfig eth0 x.x.x.x/x
ip ro add default via x.x.x.x

Zentyal fails to come up, and after a reboot the network stays down.

cat /var/log/boot.log

Cloud-init v. 0.7.5 running ‘init’ at Fri, 21 Jun 2019 12:56:26 +0000. Up 3.92 seconds.

Anybody experienced this problem ? Have not been able to bring the machine back online properly.

  • Managed to get zentyal up manually starting modules. If machine reboots I am sure it will loose its network settings until the above cloud init error is resolved.

I believe this is directly an issue with Zentyal which hasn’t been fixed yet. I’ve seen a lot of reports about it.

Can you let me know how did you went about starting modules and which version of Zentyal are you using?
