eth0:1 SIOCSIFADDR: No such device

Issue :-

The ifconfig command does not show the network interface (eg eth0), but may show a new one (eg em1) with only network-routing IP. Restarting ipaliases within the GuestOS with the command sudo /etc/init.d/ipaliases restart shows the error:
root@Server [/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts]# /etc/init.d/ipaliases restart

Solution :-
1) Open WHM using network IP then follows steps WHM >>  Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel & WHM Setup
and change “The ethernet device…………….” to em1
2) restart the ipaliases (Issue may be solved here)
3) If you still have same issue then check other linux server on which you will find the “em1” device in ifconfig command
4) Copy the ipaliases file from /etc/init.d from above server to server on which you have issue of ipaliases
( if it will not copy and paste then check attribute using lsattr command and change the attribute using chattr command)
5) Now restart the ipalises
