Redhat Networking
 
Settting up NetworkManager
If you prefer to keep NetworkManager up and running, either use the TUI,
nmtui
or manually,
vi /etc/hostname
cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
cp ifcfg-eno16780032 DIST.ifcfg-eno16780032
vi ifcfg-eno16780032
BOOTPROTO=static
DNS1=10.0.0.X
DNS2=10.0.0.X
DNS3=10.0.0.X
DOMAIN=example.local 
IPADDR=10.0.0.X
PREFIX=22
GATEWAY=10.0.0.X
 
Static routes
the device dependent way
ifconfig
on RHEL6,
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0
on RHEL7 VM,
vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-ens192
local_network_ip_address
#network.0.0/16 via local_network_ip_address via eth0
#network.0.0/16 via local_network_ip_address via ens192
 
the right way
cd /etc/sysconfig/
vi static-routes
any net network.0.0 netmask 255.255.0.0 gw local_network_ip_address 
 
apply
(also works if using NetworkManager),
on RHEL6,
service network restart
on RHEL7,
systemctl restart network
 
Setting up VLAN tagging
If you really want to use VLAN tagging on the OS level (eeeeeeeeeeek),
netif=eth1
tag=9

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
cat > ifcfg-$netif <<EOF
DEVICE=$netif
TYPE=Ethernet
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
EOF

cat > ifcfg-$netif.$tag <<EOF
DEVICE=$netif.$tag
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=10.9.9.1
NETMASK=255.255.255.0
VLAN=yes
EOF

unset netif tag
service network restart
