NAME

       netplan-apply - apply configuration from netplan YAML files to a running system

SYNOPSIS

       netplan [–debug] apply -h | –help

       netplan [–debug] apply

DESCRIPTION

       netplan apply applies the current netplan configuration to a running system.

       The process works as follows:

       1. The backend configuration is generated from netplan YAML files.

       2. The  appropriate  backends  (systemd-networkd(8)  or  NetworkManager(8)) are invoked to
          bring up configured interfaces.

       3. netplan apply iterates through interfaces that are  still  down,  unbinding  them  from
          their  drivers,  and rebinding them.  This gives udev(7) renaming rules the opportunity
          to run.

       4. If any devices have been rebound, the appropriate backends are re-invoked in case  more
          matches can be done.

       For  information  about  the generation step, see netplan-generate(8).  For details of the
       configuration file format, see netplan(5).

OPTIONS

       -h, –help
              Print basic help.

       –debug Print debugging output during the process.

KNOWN ISSUES

       netplan apply will not remove virtual devices such as bridges and  bonds  that  have  been
       created,  even  if they are no longer described in the netplan configuration.  That is due
       to the fact that netplan operates statelessly and is not aware of the  previously  defined
       virtal devices.

       This  can  be resolved by manually removing the virtual device (for example ip link delete
       dev bond0) and then running netplan apply, by rebooting, or by creating a temporary backup
       of  the  YAML  state  in  /etc/netplan before modifying the configuration and passing this
       state to netplan (e.g.  mkdir  -p  /tmp/netplan_state_backup/etc  &&  cp  -r  /etc/netplan
       /tmp/netplan_state_backup/etc/       then      running      netplan      apply      –state
       /tmp/netplan_state_backup)
