I'd like to use ifconfig to discover/set the IP addresses of the physical NICs in my VMware host server from the console. But when I try to locate the ifconfig utility, it doesn't seem to be installed. Neither 'find' nor 'slocate' can locate the utility. It doesn't seem to be in /sbin or any other place.
I'm open to alternatives. All I need to do is set the IPs for the physical NICs on the host server. These NICs are connecting my VMs to our production LAN via a vSwitch.
