[[email protected] ~]# ifup eno1 RTNETLINK answers: File exists RTNETLINK answers: File exists RTNETLINK answers: File exists [[email protected] ~]#Confirm eno1 is now enabled and shows assigned IP addr:
[[email protected] ~]# ifconfig eno1 eno1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255
Link activity lights should populate on adapters
Found onboot setting in ifcfg-eno1 of the adapter displaying as onboot=no
[[email protected] ~]# grep -i onboot /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg* /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eno1:ONBOOT=no /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-lo:ONBOOT=yes [[email protected] ~]#
This can be confirmed within the UI:
Configure > Appliances, Network > select adapter and edit:
Expectations are that "Start Adapter on Boot" is checked, if found unchecked select then save to apply.
