This step is optional. If you do not want to connect a fiber card, skip to Connect the Network Interface Cables.
NetMon appliances can be configured to work with Ethernet interfaces on installed PCI cards. If you are using manual network configuration, you do not need to run the AddEth.pl script. Instead, manually configure the new interfaces following CentOS guidelines.
Whenever a new interface is added, the AddEth.pl script can be used to create the necessary CentOS network configuration files for NetMon. The AddEth.pl script also updates NetMon configuration files to use the new interfaces.
If you are using DHCP, type sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -m <management interface> -r <recovery interface> -b <bonded interface>,<bonded interface>,…
- The comma-separated list of bonded interfaces is where you can add the new interfaces on the PCI card.
To specify a single interface to capture, use -c instead of -b.
- If you are using a Static IP, type sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -m <management interface> -r <recovery interface> -b <bonded interface>,<bonded interface>,… -i <static IP> -s <netmask> -g <gateway>
- As with DHCP, you can specify where the new PCI card interfaces are used and how.
For help with using the AddEth.pl script, run the following command:
sudo /usr/local/probe/scripts/AddEth.pl -h
