Why is networking dead after a soft reboot?
So I just ran "reboot now" as root on an Ubuntu 12 VM (I'd installed/updated some packages and it said reboot required). I waited a while but the machine was dead to the outside world. Not contactable via SSH or HTTP (80). I logged in via the console and: ps aux | grep nginx Yep. It's running ps aux | ssh Yep. All ok. curl -i http://www.google.com/ Nothing! Hmmm... ifconfig The interface appears to be up. /etc/init.d/networking restart Ok, but still no connectivity. Power cycled via the Droplet admin thing and everything's back to normal. Any idea what's going on there? This is a new VM with only a handful of packages installed - nothing outlandish and no config changes to do with networking at all. Any idea what's going on?
