When you see “Debian: Running /etc/init.d/networking restart is deprecated because it may not enable again some interfaces”

If you are SSH’ed into interface eth0, if you do an ifdown eth0, you lose connectivity. One thing I tested in a VirtualBox Debian virtual machine (VM) is the following command and my connection didn’t break. But before you do anything on a production system, test this out properly.

su -
ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0

Or if you have sudo privileges, then only

sudo ifdown eth0 && sudo ifup eth0
