It is not possible to add required network interface to Plesk Automation (PA) service node.
Go to PA Control Panel> Infrastructure Director> Service Nodes>[name of service node]> Networking> IP pools > Attach > Select net interface - required interface is absent.
No configuration files for required network interface are in the
The network interface persists on the server but the required settings are not set:
# ip a l 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo inet6 ::1/128 scope host valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000 link/ether 1e:b0:03:7c:19:46 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff inet 10.0.1.46/24 brd 10.0.1.255 scope global eth0 inet6 fe80::1cb0:3ff:fe7c:1946/64 scope link valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever 3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 qdisc noop state DOWN qlen 1000 link/ether 1e:b0:03:4e:01:ff brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
PA records information about network configuration of service nodes only at initial service node registration. And in case of any network configuration changes on service node after registration, it will not be reflected in PA. The only way to update required information is to delete service node from PA, and reattach it back.
The functionality which you expect from the Plesk Automation - Ability to reread network interfaces added after initial service node registration - can be considered as feature request.
The feature request number TP-140883 regarding the matter was created..

NOTE: the solution is applicable for unused service nodes only! In case if the service node is used by clients there is no ability to detach it from PPA. In this case you should first move clients services to other service nodes using PA Moving Tool. Moving mail services between service nodes is available only since the 11.5 version.
Create configuration file for the required network interface if it doesn't exist:
# cp /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1
Set the required settings in interface configuration file
# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth1 DEVICE=eth1 ONBOOT=yes IPADDR=192.168.1.20 NETMASK=255.255.255.0
You can read more about interface configuration files in CentOS Deployment Guide
Start the required network interface
# ifup eth1
Make sure that required network interface is RUNNING
# ifconfig eth1
Remove service node from PPA.
- Add service node back, with already updated network configuration.
