Manual Ip Assign?


While booting redhat 7.3 it fails on the eth0 startup.

I went into network configuration within redhat, but when I click it, simply nothing happens. I tried internet config, again nothing happens.

So is there anyway I can manually assign the IP and netmask from the terminal so that this is assigned at startup?

Thanks

Shaun

/sbin/ifdown eth0
vi /etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0
select line IPADDR=192.168.0.43
/sbin/ifup eth0

the above modification is on redhat 9 distro

i've got redhat 9 installed on another harddrive, and it works fine, but the computer I'm using is slightly old, so I thought I'd tried 7.3 to see if it was any faster.

What do I do with the above code? Sorry, pretty new to this.

those are all just commands

just go to your shell mode and do the same

for eg;

root@fuelinj]# /sbin/ifdown eth0...

continue with the above line

Will this keep a note of the ip on the system for when I've rebooted, or will I have to keep doing this?

Also, I thought you had to specify the mask too eg 255.255.255.0?

Whats the ifconfig command for? I read about this somewhere?

>> i am not sure, but if you want to assign ip address for particular eth device, it will get stored here

Also, I thought you had to specify the mask too eg 255.255.255.0?
>> ipaddr is one among the lines.
>> other things you keep with your default values.

Whats the ifconfig command for? I read about this somewhere?
>> /sbin/ifconfig is to display the configured eth devices

So am I right in saying that these commands, de-activate the ethernet, assign an ip, then re-activate it with the assigned ip?
