About this Hands-on Lab

In this learning activity, you will take the DHCP assigned IP address and assign it as a static IP. This is an unforgiving exercise. If you misconfigure the IP address settings, you will need to restart the lab.

Learning Objectives

Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:

Configure Static IPs
nmcli con

In your career you will need to work with a variety of hardware and device names. In this lab, for this generation of hardware, the network interface DEVICE will normally be eth0. If you observe a different interface DEVICE id for the primary interface adjust the scripts to make use of that DEVICE id.

nmcli con mod System eth0 ipv4.method manual ipv4.addresses ipv4.gateway ipv4.dns ipv4.dns-search ec2.internal
Verify That the Address Is Now Set Manually, Not Dynamically
nmcli con show System eth0 | grep ipv4
Restart Networking
systemctl restart network

Additional Resources

In preperation for moving hardware to colocation, you are being tasked with assigning hosts their dynamic IPs as static addresses.
