systemd-network-generator.service - Man Page

Generate network configuration from the kernel command line





systemd-network-generator.service is a system service that translates ip= and related settings on the kernel command line (see below) into systemd.network(5), systemd.netdev(5), and systemd.link(5) configuration files understood by systemd-networkd.service(8) and systemd-udevd.service(8).

Files are generated in /run/systemd/network/.

Note: despite the name, this generator executes as a normal systemd service and is not an implementation of the systemd.generator(7) concept.

Kernel Command Line Options

This tool understands the following options:

ip=, nameserver=, rd.route=, rd.peerdns=

Translated into systemd.network(5) files.

In addition to the parameters dracut.cmdline(7) defines the ip= option accepts the special value "link-local". If selected, the network interfaces will be configured for link-local addressing (IPv4LL, IPv6LL) only, DHCP or IPv6RA will not be enabled.

Added in version 245.

ifname=, net.ifname-policy=

Translated into systemd.link(5) files.

Added in version 245.

vlan=, bond=, bridge=, bootdev=

Translated into systemd.netdev(5) files.

Added in version 245.

See dracut.cmdline(7) and systemd-udevd.service(8) for option syntax and details.
