Installation boot of RHEL8 (network settings)

This blog is my extended memory, and as such, its task is to remind me things I tend to forget, saving me the time required to search them again. So here is another one of these things.

The network settings syntax for RHEL8/OEL8 or any of their compatible systems, when you want to pass these to Anaconda, as can be found here, are

inst.ks=http://url-to-ks.com ip=10.10.10.2::10.10.10.254:255.255.255.0:testsrv1:em1:none dns=10.10.10.253

These network settings works for static IP addresses, and would be constructed by these arguments:

ip=|IP address|::|gateway|:|netmask|:|hostname|:|interface|:|bootproto|

I find this syntax confusing, and so – I’ve kept it here to help me remember it.

Hope it helps.
