How to fix vyatta protocol daemon is not running

The problem: protocol daemon is not running

While attempting to commit a change on a new vyatta router install I ran into this error:

[email protected]# commit
 
[[interfaces bonding bond0]] failed
[ interfaces ethernet eth1 ]
% Protocol daemon is not running
 
[[interfaces ethernet eth1]] failed
[ interfaces ethernet eth0 ]
% Protocol daemon is not running

[edit]

The solution

It turns out that the system had not fully initialized itself on boot. Lucikly the fix is easy. A simple restart of the vyatta-unicast service resolved the issue.

sudo /etc/init.d/vyatta-unicast restart
