2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) vlan problem in xen (xcp-ng)
With version 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 (amd64) and xcp-ng (xen) the non working vlans could be fixed by adding the following lines to the /etc/inc/interfaces.inc file (following the instructions by: http://think-brick.blogspot.com/2016/02/pfsense-on-xenserver-enable-vlan.html) >>
" // hack for XenServer xn interfaces
if (substr($iface, 0, 2) == "xn")
However with version 2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) this does not work anymore.
Also if upgraded from 2.4.4-RELEASE-p3 to 2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 this breaks.
Has anyone a workaround to get the vlans working again in the updated version.
/ kind regards, Pete
"I know nothing!" about the specific issue, but instead of fixing something by manually patching the interfaces.inc file I would suggest that you add a ticket on https://redmine.pfsense.org/projects/pfsense/roadmap as to describe the reason for a fix / patch with a detail about how it used to work when you patched the file. (You will have to login or create a pfSense redmine account on that site.) Also it would probably be a good idea to link this forum thread to the ticket (and vice-versa).
It will save you from the trouble in the future as updates are released.
Have a good day. :-)
