In Place Upgrade of Ubuntu 14.04 LXC Container to 18.04?

Hi all,

Is this advisable?

The reason I ask is, I'm not sure I fully understand how the PVE frontend configures the containers network and other settings.

14.04 and 16.04 use ifup/down and are thus configured in /etc/network/interfaces, but 18.04 replaces ifup/down with netplan, which is configured in YAML files elsewhere.

Will the PVE frontend still know how to change network settings if I do so using the interface?

Appreciate any thoughts.
