Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

Previously we only checked {{<...>}} in the bracket info and treated this interface as {{UP}} if and only if no output of ethtool is available.

Please have a look at the following scenarios and how we now determine whether an interface is {{UP}}:

  • {{}} means that this interface has a link and is UP
  • {{}} means that this interface is configured and ADMIN UP but has no link
  • {{}} means that this interface is not configured
