I have the following setup:
A server, that has 16 different subinterfaces eth1:1-eth1:16. This was designed by someone who still has control over this area, and I have minimal access to changes with regards to this configuration.
I'm attempting to configure eth1:16 for use with OVZ. It appears as though I have netdev configured incorrectly, and the error is causing the template start to fail.
My guess is it has to do with the subinterface. I can't find any information about using subinterfaces in the users guide.
Question: How do you configure an network interface with a subinterface.
It looks like venet or veth might be able to solve this, but I'm not familiar with their configuration, and not sure how to use it entirely. I didn't see much help in the user guide.
Below is the trace when trying to start the server.
