VMWare Vsphere Client V5.5 - Oracle Linux - install static IP address

On a host I created a Oracle Linux guest VM, can someone tell me how I can add a static IP address to this individual VM.

Do I have to install any additional software.

I hope it will work for you as well


You should edit the file: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and then put something like the following:

ifdown eth0 && ifup eth0
ifconfig eth0

Make sure you also install VMware Tools!

see my EE Article

Part 9: HOW TO: Install VMware Tools for Linux on a VMware Linux virtual machine on a VMware vSphere Hypervisor 5.1 (ESXi 5.1) Host Server

this is also valid for ESXi 5.5.
