2. Network Interface Configuration

DHCP or Static:
Step 1 » Check the network interface name by typing below command

[root@linux1 ~]# ip a
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 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
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    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 9a:4a:27:66:a4:4c brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 10.9.1.26/24 brd 10.91.128.255 scope global eth0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::984a:27ff:fe66:a44c/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Here “lo” is the loopback interface and “eth0” is the network interface that you need to configure .

Step 2 » you can see the file named ifcfg-eth0 ( Interface name ) in the location “/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/” , open the file and you can see the lines as below, which is static ip 10.9.1.26 assigned to interface eth0

[root@linux network-scripts]$ cat ifcfg-eth0TYPE=Ethernet BOOTPROTO=static NAME=eth0 ONBOOT=yes IPADDR=10.9.1.26 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 DEVICE=eth0
Just modify the lines like this

DEVICE=”eth0″
HWADDR=”00:22:19:09:4D:3C”
NM_CONTROLLED=”yes”
ONBOOT=”yes”    # Interface enabled

BOOTPROTO=”dhcp”  #Assigning IP from DHCP

Step 3 » Start the network service and you can see the status as below .

[root@linux1~]# service network start
Bringing up loopback interface:                [  OK  ]
Bringing up interface p4p1:
Determining IP information for p4p1... done.   [  OK  ]
