Every couple days, my cPanel server will stop being communicating on one of its IPs. If I look in WHM, the IP isn't listed, but if I try adding it, it says it's already been added. Running
Code:
/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipaliases restart
from the console fixes the issue.

What am I actually doing when I run that command? I'd like to figure out what's actually causing the problem so I don't need to keep fixing it. Is it something that's possibly the server host's fault, or more likely a misconfiguration on my end?

I'm not having the issue at the moment, but as I recall the problem IP does not show up in ifconfig. All the functioning addresses do.

I'll double-check next time it happens and update this post.

You may also want to review the files in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts to verify the proper entries are added for the IP address in question.

Thank you.
