Linux – Removing all IP information from an interface

If an interface has already had IP addresses assigned to it, and all of the addresses need to be removed (along with their routes), there is one handy command to accomplish all of these tasks. ip address flush takes an interface name as an argument. Let’s look at the output of ip address show just before and just after removing all IPs.

[[email protected]]# ip address show dev eth0
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 100
link/ether 00:80:c8:f8:4a:51 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
inet 192.168.99.35/24 brd 192.168.99.255 scope global eth0
inet 192.168.99.37/24 brd 192.168.99.255 scope global secondary eth0:0
[[email protected]]# ip address flush
Flush requires arguments.
[[email protected]]# ip address flush dev eth0
[[email protected]]# ip address show dev eth0
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast qlen 100
link/ether 00:80:c8:f8:4a:51 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
