<networking> <interfaces config:type="list"> <interface> <bootproto>static</bootproto> <device>eth0</device> <ipaddr>10.0.0.1</ipaddr> </interface> <interface> <bootproto>static</bootproto> <device>eth1</device> <ipaddr>126.96.36.199</ipaddr> </interface> </interfaces> </networking>
To ask the user for ip address for the first interface, eth0, the following fragment needs to be used:
<ask> <path>networking,interfaces,0,ipaddr</path> <question>Enter the server IP address:</question> <stage>initial</stage> <default>10.0.0.1</default> </ask>
Note that the interface number needs to be specified in the <path></path> element and that interfaces are numbered starting from zero and refer back to the interfaces as defined in the <interfaces></interfaces> section.
To also ask for an IP address for the second interface during autoyast installation, the following fragment needs to be used:
<ask> <path>networking,interfaces,1,ipaddr</path> <question>Enter the server IP address:</question> <stage>initial</stage> <default>188.8.131.52</default> </ask>
More details can be found in the SUSE AutoYaST documentation for the corresponding OS/SP version.
