Perform the following postinstallation steps to configure the network on Oracle VM Server.
Editing the /etc/sysconfig/network File
You edit the /etc/sysconfig/network file to add the hostname of the machine and gateway and netmask for the network.
To edit the /etc/sysconfig/network file:
Navigate to and open the /etc/sysconfig/network file in a text editor.
Change the HOSTNAME to the name of the machine.
Enter the GATEWAY and NETMASK for the network.
HOSTNAME=<name of the machine>
Save the file.
You configure bond0 by editing the ifcfg-bond0 file.
To edit the ifcfg-bond0 file:
Navigate to and open the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0 file in a text editor.
Change the BOOTPROTO to static.
Add the IP Address of the machine.

To edit the hosts file:
Navigate to and open the /etc/hosts file in a text editor.
Add the IP Address, host name, and alias for the host.
xx.xxx.xx.xxx exalyticsHost1.mycompany.com.exalytics Host1
Ensure the IP Address of the host is the same as the IP Address you entered in the ifcfg-bond0 file.
Editing the resolv.conf File
To edit the resolve.conf file:
Navigate to and open the /etc/resolve.conf file in a text editor.
