[RESOLVED] Setting up a network from a minimal install

Postby JepDoc » 2013/06/06 19:37:07

Hi,

I am trying to install CentOS 6.4 as a virtual server in Hyper-V. This is a task I am working on at my summer internship and I am a little lost. I installed a minimal distribution of CentOS and do not seem to have internet connectivity. Is that because I do not have the correct packages included? I am trying to set up a connection via the ethernet port. I do not see "eth0" when I enter ifconfig on the command line. Does anyone have some ideas, instructions, tips, or hints about where I should start?

Do you see your network card listed in the output of `ifconfig -a`? If so then see point 2 of the CentOS 6 FAQ. If not then you need to find a driver for the card and posting the output of

Code: Select all
lspci -nn | grep -i net


should help us to help you to identify it.

Oh Sorry for the late reply. I happened to be kicked of off the server the other day as an engineer here was in need of it. I then was placed on another machine and had to reinstall centOS. This time I had no problem with installing the networking services. I am not sure what the problem was but everything is working now. Thank you for your help.
