Asked by Nikolaos on 2016-08-05


I am phasing a problem on setting static IP using dell-edge-gateway-5000

we use: sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces and following the procedure below:

auto lo eth0
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
        address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(enter your ip here)
        netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
        gateway xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(enter gateway ip here,usually the address of the router)
        dns-nameservers x.x.x.x

Then Restarting: systemctl restart ifup@eth0 successfully.

However we do not have internet access and after rebooting it is loosing all the setting saying "network un-managed"

please assist,

Thanks, Nick

Hi Nick,

have you tried adding the information on the interfaces.d directory instead?

I'll try to find out more information and add it here when I do.
