This command lets you configure the use of DHCP for the network interface of the SVM.
The new settings are applied after the file /etc/resolv.conf is overwritten as a result of a restart of the SVM or network service (the
manageservices restart network command).
If you want to change the IP address assignment method for SVMs using static IP addressing to the use of DHCP, sequentially execute the
dnssearch commands without parameters after the
dhcp command. This lets you delete the previously configured list of DNS servers and search domains in the file /etc/resolv.conf.
If you want to add a DNS server or search domain to the list of DNS servers and search domains received over the DHCP protocol when using dynamic IP addressing, first restart the SVM or restart the network service (the
manageservices restart network command). This lets you overwrite the file /etc/resolv.conf. Then execute the
dnssearch commands with the necessary parameters.
- <InterfaceName> – name of the network interface. For example, eth0.
- <MakePrimary> = yes|no – indicator of whether it is the primary network interface (optional parameter). Possible values:
- yes – network interface is primary.
- no – network interface is not primary.
The primary network interface sets the default route and DNS servers (DEFROUTE = yes, PEERDNS = yes). Only one network interface from those utilized by an SVM may be primary. If the "primary" indicator is assigned to multiple network interfaces, the last one of them becomes the primary network interface.
