The original error was on a KVM VM. I was using eth1:eth2 and got that
error. I moved it to the host, and am now using eth2:eth3 and got the same
error but it did state "eth2". I just copied the original error for the
post, that¹s why eth1 is in it. No matter what interface I use, I get the
same error.
