Change VM from DHCP to Static IP

Steps to change DHCP configuration to a static IP, if the VM was originally configured using DHCP. I’ve had to look this up a few times so I’m documenting it here.

Edit the network adapter

  • Edit the following file as root user



And save the file

Edit the hosts file

  • Also edit the host file in etc as root user.


Do not edit these two lines which is given as default localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6

Add this at the end of the file aapum

Restart the network services

  • Restart the network using this command.
service network restart
