Configuration of network interfaces

The network module is used to create and manage network settings, interfaces can be set as either managed or ignored. By default all interfaces are ignored unless specified.

Note

RedHat-based systems (RHEL, CentOS, Scientific, etc.) have been supported since version 2014.1.0.

Debian-based systems (Debian, Ubuntu, etc.) have been supported since version 2017.7.0. The following options are not supported: ipaddr_start, and ipaddr_end.

Other platforms are not yet supported.

Note

On Debian-based systems, networking configuration can be specified in /etc/network/interfaces or via included files such as (by default) /etc/network/interfaces.d/*. This can be problematic for configuration management. It is recommended to use either file.managed or network.managed.

If using network.managed, it can be useful to ensure interfaces.d/ is empty. This can be done using:

/etc/network/interfaces.d:

    the hostname. Default behavior is to delete unspecified network
    settings.

Note

When managing bridged interfaces on a Debian or Ubuntu based system, the ports argument is required. Red Hat systems will ignore the argument.
