Yes, systemd-networkd ist active. But on most machines I only have *.link
entries, usually one to name the device:
Most of them are virtual machines.
On those machine where I also habe *.netdev and *.network entries this also
happens. The one with the simpliest has only one *.network:
This interface works fine. But other interfaces configured by
/etc/network/interfaces or the manually created interface TEST loose there
ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.
Please note, that I did not create a *.link entry for TEST on any of the
If I later restart these interfaces (with ifdown + ifup for
/etc/network/interfaces, systemctl restart test-network-device.service for
TEST) they keep their addresses.
