Disable netplan on Ubuntu 17.10

Netpaln is default network configuration tool introduced in ubuntu 17.10 and if you want to disable this to go back to old ways of configuring network use the following procedure.

Netplan is a YAML network configuration abstraction for various backends (NetworkManager, networkd).

It is a utility for easily configuring networking on a system. It can be used by writing a YAML description of the required network interfaces with what they should be configured to do. From this description it will generate the required configuration for a chosen renderer tool.

Edit the /etc/default/grub file

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Add the following line


Save and exit the file

sudo update-grub

Now you can add all the interface details in /etc/network/interfaces file and reboot the ubuntu PC/server.
