Hi All,

I need to be able to load the 8021q module at startup. Most of the articles I have found do not apply to SLES12.

I have tried creating the /etc/sysconfig/kernel file and adding the following statement:
MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT=8021q

This did not work.

I suspect I need to modify something in /etc/modprobe.d or /etc/modules-load.d but cannot find any good documentation on what I need to do.

Here is the manual process I use to get the module loaded.
# lsmod | grep 8021q
#
# modprobe 8021q
# lsmod | grep 8021q
8021q 28794 0
garp 14384 1 8021q
mrp 18778 1 8021q

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
WS

There was a similar post in the openSUSE forums a while back that may be
interesting:

https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/502107-opensuse-13-2-load-module-at-boot

Based on that, I found that modules-load.d has a manpage. Since you said
you did not find any documentatin, you may want to try that:



man modules-load.d


From the manpage is this example:



EXAMPLE
Example 1. /etc/modules-load.d/virtio-net.conf example:

# Load virtio-net.ko at boot
virtio-net

Thank you for steering me in the right direction. I created a 8021q.conf file in the /etc/modules-load.d/ directory rebooted and it successfully loaded the module.

#ls /etc/modules-load.d/
8021q.conf

# more /etc/modules-load.d/8021q.conf
# Load 8021q at boot
8021q

#After reboot

# lsmod |grep 802
8021q 28794 0
garp 14384 1 8021q
mrp 18778 1 8021q

dmesg |grep 8021q
[ 18.961144] 8021q: 802.1Q VLAN Support v1.8
