How to configure IP address on Oracle Linux

Adding IP address in Oracle Linux can be done by editing the network-scripts. While this procedure is tested on Oracle Linux, i'm sure it should work on Redhat Enterprise Linux and other versions of Redhat.

Editing network - scripts
   The network interface configuration files are found in the directory:
   /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/


 To add an IP address to an interface eth0
 # cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
 # vi ifcfg-eth0

 Enter the below parameters for static configuration
 DEVICE="eth0"
 BOOTPROTO="static"
 BROADCAST="192.168.2.255"
 HWADDR="00:0C:29:DS:22:26"
 IPADDR="192.168.2.2"
 NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
 

 NETWORK="192.168.2.0"   
 ONBOOT="yes"
 TYPE="Ethernet"



  Save the file by typing ESC :wq

  Restart the network service for the changes to take effect.
  # service network restart
