i want to ask that when you add an network interface on Centos 6.9 on vmware. Then why doesn't it produce a file like ifcfg-ethx in the directory /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts. Do we have to create a new file using vi editor for bonding purpose? any help would be much appreciated. Thanks


Indeed after first installation, the files won't be created automatically.

Possible alternatives to set it up:

  • manually writing the files using vi or other text editor
  • network-manager if installed (nmcli....)
  • /usr/bin/system-config-network (text-base UI)
  • graphical settings on your desktop (if installed)

(maybe other exist... )
