Have built out the OS and installed the health-diagnostics .iso but unable to get it to ping... When it boots up and you run ip addr it does not show having an IP Address. When you go into the 99-static-en.network it does show the correct ip, subnet mask & gateway. What am I missing to get this corrected?
For ping to happen you will have to run the iptables command for egress and ingress on ICMP ping packets
Here it is
iptables -A INPUT -p ICMP -j ACCEPT iptables -A OUTPUT -p ICMP -j ACCEPT
iptables-save > /etc/systemd/scripts/ip4save to survive the above after reboots.
@rpine looking at the journals can provide some insights into the failure.
Logged is as root user in the console, restart the network service and inspect the journal
systemctl restart systemd-networkd
journalctl -u systemd-networkd
You can scroll to the end of the journal display (Shift + G) and review for any failures.
