--interface

Specify an interface address to use as the source address by entering a value using the DR Series system CLI --interface command option.

Example

network --ping --destination system-69 --interface bond0

network --blink

Syntax

 network --blink --nwif <ethN> --time <N>

		 --nwif   Eth interface to blink.
		 --time   Blink duration time in seconds (default 10, max 300).

For example, to blink the LED for eth3, run the command: network --blink --nwif eth3 --time 30

Result

Check the LED on the ethernet card on the back of the system for identification.

network --enable

Syntax

 network --enable [--bondif <bond0,bond1,...,bondN>]
        	[--nwif <eth0,eth1,...,ethN>]


       		--bondif   Bond interface(s) to delete.
        	--nwif     Eth interface(s) to dele

For example, to enable eth2, run the command: network --enable --nwif eth2

Result

Interface device operation successful. Please restart networking for the changes to take effect.

network --disable

Syntax

 network --disable [--bondif <bond0,bond1,...,bondN>]
        	[--nwif <eth0,eth1,...,ethN>]


       		--bondif   Bond interface(s) to delete.
        	--nwif     Eth interface(s) to dele
Note: You cannot disable eth interfaces which are part of a bond.

For example, to disable eth2, run the command: network --disable --nwif eth2

Result

Interface device operation successful. Please restart networking for the changes to take effect.
