I want to migrate my network configuration to netplan. I have been using ifup/down and the /etc/network/interfaces file to configure my static IPs, but this has been deprecated and support will be withdrawn in the 17.10 release.

However

sudo netplan ifupdown-migrate

returns

enp0s3: method static is not supported

So how do I convert this /etc/network/interfaces stanza?

auto enp0s3
  iface enp0s3 inet static
  address 192.168.0.123
  netmask 255.255.255.0
  gateway 192.168.0.1
  dns-nameservers 8.8.8.8  8.8.4.4
  • What does the complete file look like?
  • How should it be named and placed?

Thank you.

After looking through the man page I came up with this:

  network:
    version: 2
    ethernets:
      enp0s3:
        addresses: [192.168.0.140/24]
        gateway4: 192.168.0.1
        nameservers:
          addresses: [8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4]

It is named

/etc/netplan/01-systemd-networkd-eth.yaml

And it works.

This command was a great help:

netplan --debug generate

which pointed me to syntactical errors.
