Upgraded edgeLinux, network is now wonky

I hadn't done anything with my antsle in a while, when I decided to do a couple of projects today. (No antlets or anything on it at the moment) The first thing I did was upgrade edgeLinux, which I did to 0.12.0. I honestly couldn't tell you what it was at before. After I upgraded, I restarted my antsle from antman, and now I can't connect to antman or ssh to any of the ip addresses the antsle is assigned. I checked my router and when the antsle boots up, it is definitely getting assigned 2 ip addresses, but I can't connect to either of them. After trying pretty much everything I discovered I still can ssh to [email protected], however from in there I can't seem to connect to or resolve any domain. I can't even ping my router. net.br0 is started, antman is started. Here is my /etc/conf.d/net:

# ---------------------------
# Configuration for enp0s20f0
# ---------------------------


config_br0=" netmask"


Hello kapunga,

Thank you for your support of Antsle. Would you do me a favor and upgrade your edgelinux to 0.12.1? That is the most recent version and may fix your problems. If the problem persists, please reply back so I can submit a ticket based on this issue.

The following worked for me. Comment the following lines from  /etc/conf.d/net

Then run:
service net.br0 restart
I also found that "service net.bro restart" has to be ran after a reboot as well, or I see what you are seeing.

I forgot I wrote this. Shortly after originally posting, got smacked with life and had to put my home projects on the back burner. I'm trying to get back to running this, and things are still strange. I managed to upgrade to edgeLinux 0.12.1, but the network is very up and down. Occasionally it works fine. The anthill daemon seems to ping anthill about once a day, just usually when I am not there. Here's a list of oddities:

I can't connect to the internet from my Antsle, so I can't perform any further upgrades etc. (it does seem to connect once in a while, just usually when I am not there.)

I can't use the antMan web console unless I ssh to [email protected] and forward the port.

I can't just plain ping my router/gateway from my antsle, it just says the host in unreachable:
root@myantsle:~ # ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable

I CAN ping it just fine with -I br0:

root@myantsle:~ # ping -I br0
PING ( from br0: 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.264 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=0.222 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.217 ms

If I ping it from enp0s20f0, which is the only NIC connected, it's not unreachable, but all the packets are lost:

root@myantsle:~ # ping -I enp0s20f0
PING ( from enp0s20f0: 56(84) bytes of data.
--- ping statistics ---
7 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 186ms

Here is my current /etc/conf.d/net:

# ---------------------------
# Configuration for enp0s20f0
# ---------------------------
config_br0=" netmask"
routes_br0="default via"

A lot of this sounds too familiar and lead me to much bigger issues. Really test other things out with various antlets, creating, adding additional interfaces, cloning, backups, restore, adding external drives, etc. I went round and round with a good support person, and eventually an engineer had to login and fix all my issues. All started after I upgraded. I'll point that support person to this thread to see if he has additional info to help you.

Thanks. Yeah, this definitely started when I upgraded to edgeLinux and a new version of Antman. Luckily, I actually have no antlets running. I had purged all of them out and was about to start fresh. I'm able to make new antlets just fine. My gut feeling is that some networking configuration is off somewhere.

Okay, progress, it appears that duplicate routes are being created when I run ip route list. If I delete the routes, the internet seems to work, but if I restart the interface, the duplicate routes re-appear. If I create and start an antlet or run a docker container, the routes re-appear. I am at a loss as to what is creating these routes, I assume it is edgeLinux related?

@akak01000101, any luck contacting the support person? I can see what's going on, (extra routes are being created), but I can't tell what is causing it and they are created faster than I can remove them if I try to run an antlet or docker container. Any chance you can tell what files your support person likely edited from you /root/.zshhist?

I pointed him to this thread, and he replied to me saying in early February they expect edgeLinux 2.0 to fix all these network issues some customers are having.

Only thing in my .zshhist file are the commands I attempted, which I mentioned earlier. They came in through the AntAid. I'm guessing it drops them into a special backdoor shell.

Sorry I couldn't be more help. I know the feeling.


Hmmm.. is my issue related??   see
