- Automatic (DHCP)
- IPv4 parameters are configured by the DHCP service on the network.
- Automatic (DHCP) addresses only
- The IPv4 address, netmask, and gateway address are configured by the DHCP service on the network, but DNS servers and search domains must be configured manually.
- IPv4 parameters are configured manually for a static configuration.
- Link-Local Only
- A link-local address in the 169.254/16 range is assigned to the interface.
- Shared to other computers
- The system is configured to provide network access to other computers. The interface is assigned an address in the 10.42.x.1/24 range, a DHCP server and DNS server are started, and the interface is connected to the default network connection on the system with network address translation (NAT).
- IPv4 is disabled for this connection.

ONBOOT=yesis set. Refer to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 Deployment Guide available from https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/Deployment_Guide/index.html for more information about interface configuration files.
- Press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to switch to virtual terminal
- Move the interface configuration file to a temporary location:
mv /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-device_name /tmpwhere device_name is the device that you just reconfigured. For example,
ifcfg-eth0is the ifcfg file for
eth0.The device is now disconnected in anaconda.
- Open the interface configuration file in the vi editor:
- Verify that the interface configuration file contains the line
ONBOOT=yes. If the file does not already contain the line, add it now and save the file.
- Exit the vi editor.
- Move the interface configuration file back to the
mv /tmp/ifcfg-device_name /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/The device is now reconnected in anaconda.
- Press Ctrl+Alt+F6 to return to anaconda.
