As I wrote in a previous article I have to deal more and more with CentOS 7 and the use of the network manager and in special the network manager command line interface or short nmcli. I will use this blog page to create a little cheat sheet for myself with the most common commands I use and hope this can be helpfull for others as well.
Device - List
This will create a list of all devices accessible with the network manager.
nmcli device show
Connections - List
When you establish a new connection this is created based on OS etc. In my case new interfaces created a connection named Wired Connection. For myself I did lookup the device ID first.
nmcli c show
Connection - Modify / Rename from Wired Connection to Device ID
nmcli c modify "Wired connection 1" connection.id ens161
Connection - Modify IP Configuration
nmcli c modify ens161 connection.interface-name ens161 ipv4.method static ipv4.addresses "10.74.1.1/24"
