    Configuring Ethernet on Linux nodes

    If you are connected with a fresh ethernet card and you need to configure the ethernet card in linux then you have to do the following steps :

    1- `Execute getadapters to find the adapter information and generate the stanza file using the command :
    getadapters -t ent -z /csminstall/tmp/mystanzafile -n clstrn01
    2- This command searches for Ethernet adapters on node clstrn01 and puts the evaluated contents in the stanza file.
    3- Now edit the stanza file and add the required parameters in the files
    4- Save with the full path name of the stanza file with appropriate node definition and run the file with the following command :
    getadapters -W -f mystanzafile
    5- Now,just configure the adapters and execute the updatenode command with the -c option:

    updatenode -c -n clstrn01
