Hello, on the installation page,

this is listed

is it mandatory for the below to be created, assuming the public ip of the server is static, and why is it mandatory, or would CE not install?

Assuming that a NIC identified as enp0s3 is free on your system, for example in Virtualbox use a Network adapter of type Internal Network, you can assign it an IP address in the preferred way:

  • use the CLI, for example ifconfig enp0s3 up

  • Use and add these lines to file /etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml:

      dhcp4: false
      dhcp6: false
      addresses: []

then issue the command netplan apply

may be a typo ...

if you assume the NIC is enp0s3 then the netplan config file should be about enp0s3 not eth1 ... or may I got it wrong ?

Hi @nitram, thanks for pointing this out. I have replaced eth1 with enp0s3, the fixed version will be available with the next release.
