IP ADDR

I tried to change to a static IP address from working DHCP model. When I do a network restart I get the following:

service network restart

Restarting network (via systemctl):  Job for network.service failed. See 'systemctl status network.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.


When I look for details:

Failed to start LSB: Bring up/down networking.

In my IP settings I have:

TYPE=Ethernet
BOOTPROTO=static
DEFROUTE=yes
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=no
IPV6INIT=yes
IPV6_AUTOCONF=yes
IPV6_DEFROUTE=yes
IPV6_FAILURE_FATAL=no
NAME=eno16777736
UUID=a68ce778-9b60-4ec5-a296-eb9ec2fe471a
ONBOOT=yes
HWADDR=00:0C:29:92:73:39
PEERDNS=yes
PEERROUTES=yes
IPV6_PEERDNS=yes
IPV6_PEERROUTES=yes
IPADDR=192.168.0.136
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1

If I reboot ... seems like I can SSH so somehow its getting the network IP right.

This should be the first line in your config file:

DEVICE="eth0"

Change it to what your device should be called (ifconfig)

Your BOOTPROTO should = none

And is you have Network Manager installed:

NM_CONTROLLED="no"

to DEVICE=eth0

use neat if you are using gui mode.

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

if you do "ifconfig", it will show you your devices by name.

My device name is eno16777736 . . .so how can I just change to eno0?
Don't I need some other setup?

Jan SpringerCommented:
No, if 'ifconfig' picks that up then that's what you should use.

When you make the final changes:

ifdown eno16777736

and then:

ifup eno16777736

Check /var/log/messages for any errors.

I hope NetworkManager  is enabled

systemctl status NetworkManager.service

ps aux | grep -I net   # will probably find NetworkManager still running.
chkconfig NetworkManager off

OR

systemctl stop NetworkManager.service

systemctl disable NetworkManager.service

systemctl restart network.service

systemctl enable network.service
systemctl NetworkManager disable

I followed this:
I hope NetworkManager  is enabled

systemctl status NetworkManager.service

ps aux | grep -I net   # will probably find NetworkManager still running.
chkconfig NetworkManager off

Then I did:


ifdown eno16777736

and then:

ifup eno16777736

Now I messed everything up:

I get on the ifup command:

The device eno16777736 has a different MAC address than expected, ignoring.

And I cannot SSH....

Urgent help

Starquest321Author Commented:
This command messed me up:

chkconfig NetworkManager off

I had to turn it back on and revert changes...
But I am still on dynmic

Jan SpringerCommented:
make sure that the mac address listed for the device (via ifconfig) is the same mac address listed in your file.

so, turn NM off, update your ifcfg-eno* file and ifdown/ifup the interface.

InsoftserviceCommented:
I mean to say that if network manager is enabled and it would not allow to connect.
After disabling your NM configure your file again and restart the service.
I thought you might have missed the point of NM and thats the reason i did not told to configure it again

Why dont you set static DHCP reservation?

Minimal config file should look like this:
DEVICE="eno16777736"
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.168.0.136
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
GATEWAY=192.168.0.1
BROADCAST=192.168.0.255
