Ifconfig command not found in Centos7

One of the first things that you might notice when logging into a new CentOS 7 minimal installation is there is no ifconfig command.

You can use the "yum provides" command to figure out what packages provide certain commands or files you're used to using.

#yum provides ifconfig

The utility has been deprecated, but if you want to use it, just install net-tools.

#yum -y install net-tools

Alternatively, you can get and manipulate your IP address using the ip command:

#ip addr sh
