Hi All, I have a fun linux admin challenge that has me sweating a bit. I have a fleet of AWS Lightsail VPS servers running basic wordpress / mysql. They're managed by the Plesk dashboard but generally Ubuntu servers. I stood them up five years ago on Ubuntu 16.04, then upgraded remotely over SSH to Ubuntu 18.04.
Now it's two years later and I just upgrade to 20.04. Things generally fine but I realize it has a very old network config, and some ipv6 scraps I want to fix. That means a fully remote, non-console, no boot from USB, SSH network package re-configuration. Any disconnect means a reboot or bricked box. I found the below online and thinking to script it but if it crashes then I'm restoring from a backup.
Any super skills or ideas for how to handle this? Alternate SSH windows won't help if I'm stopping and restarting eth0. Am I overthinking this and it just works? It's a simple auto ip4 dhcp nic config under a standard EC2 hypervisor, aws virtual nic driver
Some suggestions found here: https://gist.github.com/mss/7a8e048dd51e5ef928039f1450ba8f31
