Configure a static IP address

coreosThis article describes how to configure a static IP address for Container Linux by CoreOS.


Configuration

Start by logging on with SSH access. Then you can run the following commands:

ifconfig

This will display the current dynamically configure interface (e.g. enp2s7). Now you can create a new static.network file.

sudo vi /etc/systemd/network/static.network

Edit the file as follows, adding your own details of course:

[Match] Name=enp2s7 [Network] Address=192.168.0.15/24 Gateway=192.168.0.1 DNS=8.8.8.8

To apply this configuration run:

sudo systemctl restart systemd-networkd

Note that this will disconnect your remote ssh session, and you will need to reconnect using the new IP address.
