Please provide useful info

systemctl restart systemd-networkd


foo bar

Too bad none of the command line options work on bionic by default anymore. By default they use netplan, ifup/ifdown/nmcli is not installed by default, the init scripts are not there and it’s no longer network-manager or NetworkManager.service anymore.


the only what worked for me was:

sudo netplan apply


Thanks for the input. Article is now updated to include the netplan option…!!!
