It is very silly but the default on the ifup-eth script tells dhclient ( the program that obtains a DHCP IPaddress if you have selected DHCPin your ifcfg-eth* config file) to EXIT / QUIT if the first attempt to obtain a lease fails.
No amount of dhclient.conf settings will fix this because if dhclient is started with -1 (which it is by default)then dhclient will quit.
This is obviously very bad for MOST cases. Say for example you have a power outage or........
This is usually because of STP causing a delay in the negotiation.
Edit your ifcfg script eg:
Add a LINKDELAY of 30 seconds or whatever works for you:
After that you should have an IP during bootup.........
Centos 7 is no cakewalk, there are many fundamental features and basic utilities that are missing or even completely renamed or different!
Another shocking thing is to check your NIC it is set by default to not turn on when booting!
And by the way there is no more standard eth0 the NIC convention is now "enp0s3"
This is actually very simple and this example assumes your network device is "eth0"
In Centos your network config would be the following: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
Take the same path and just add a "-range0"
So to add a range create the following file: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0-range0
It's a basic script that reads the file "ips.txt" in the current directory and then creates a corresponding ifcfg file
for ips in `cat ips.txt`; do........
Basically the two main types of distros are Debian and RHEL/Centos based. I'm just going to give a quick overview of how the configuration of IP interfaces works in Debian/Centos based distros.
*Just one thing to remember, when setting IPs statically you have to manually specify a DNS server in /etc/resolv.conf (since DHCP is what normally does it automatically)
The IP (DHCP &........
Setup Static IP Address ONBOOTAssuming you are using eth0
Note this will work for any version of CentOS and basically any version of Redhat Linux or Redhat based distribution.
You would need to create a new file
the ":0" at the end specifies alias 0 we could actually change this to ":99" or "........
