Linode not connecting after upgrade/maintenance

Fellow Linoders,

Just in case you notice that you cannot connect to ssh or ping your beloved node after maintenance or upgrade, make sure you have the 'Auto-Configure Networking' option set to enabled in your node's configuration profile, which is available from

Node > Settings > Advanced Configurations > Configuration section for your node label's Edit Menu > Scroll down on the right pane.

This will load the last known (and hopefully working) networking configs back on after a reboot. After you enable this, simply reboot the node.

This is the safest and easiest way to get back into your node. For more details follow detailed documentation here.
