No Network Connectivity for Linux Servers After Recovery from Image

For Cloud Servers

If you have restored a Linux server in the Cloud Panel from an image backed up under Infrastructure > Images, but it cannot be accessed from outside, the cause may be a (now obsolete) set of rules for naming the network interfaces. You can check whether this is the case for you as follows:

  • Connect to your server via KVM console.

  • Check if the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules exists:

[root@localhost ~]# ls -l /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 422 Jan 4 11:20 /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
  • If yes, delete the file and restart the server:

[root@localhost ~]# rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
[root@localhost ~]# reboot
