Add Ethernet Devices - AWS Elemental Server

This is version 2.16 of the AWS Elemental Server documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor File and AWS Elemental Server Documentation.

Add Ethernet Devices

The eth0 device was automatically set up during installation. If you also set up eth1 at that time, no further configuration is required. If you didn't set up eth1 or want to set up more devices, use these instructions to do so.

To add Ethernet devices

  1. On the AWS Elemental Server web interface, go to the Settings page and choose Network.

  2. On the Network page, choose Network Devices.

  3. On the Network Devices page, choose Add Network Device.

  4. In the Add a New Network Device dialog, select eth (ethN).

  5. Complete the fields as follows:

    • Device Name: Select the eth device that you're setting up.

    • Management: Typically, leave this unchecked. This device won't be set up as a management interface. The node is usually installed with eth0 as the management interface and the node doesn't need more than one.

    • Description: Auto-populates when you choose a device name. You can modify the description as needed.

    • Master Device: Should display No devices with port bond settings available. This wording indicates that you haven't created a bond-type device, so bonding isn't available.

    • Address Mode: Select the type of IP addresses this device uses, either dhcp, static, or none. If you're bonding eth0 and eth1, use static IPs.

    • IP Address, Netmask, Gateway: Available when static IP addresses are used only. Complete with your networking information.

    • Static Routes: Select if you're using static routing.

    • Network, Netmask, Gateway: Available when static routes are used only. Complete with your networking information.

  6. Choose Save. The new device appears in the Network Devices list.
