Static Addressing

Static addressing is comprised of specifying cidr, routes ( remember to add your default gateway ), and interface. Most likely you'll also want to define the nameservers so you have properly functioning DNS.

machine:
  network:
    hostname: talos
    nameservers:
      - 10.0.0.1
    time:
      servers:
        - time.cloudflare.com
    interfaces:
      - interface: eth0
        cidr: 10.0.0.201/8
        mtu: 8765
        routes:
          - network: 0.0.0.0/0
            gateway: 10.0.0.1
      - interface: eth1
        ignore: true

Additional Addresses for an Interface

In some environments you may need to set additional addresses on an interface. In the following example, we set two additional addresses on the loopback interface.

machine:
  network:
    interfaces:
      - interface: lo0
        cidr: 192.168.0.21/24
      - interface: lo0
        cidr: 10.2.2.2/24

Bonding

The following example shows how to create a bonded interface.

machine:
  network:
    interfaces:
      - interface: bond0
        dhcp: true
        bond:
          mode: 802.3ad
          lacprate: fast
          hashpolicy: layer3+4
          miimon: 100
          updelay: 200
          downdelay: 200
          interfaces:
            - eth0
            - eth1

VLANs

To setup vlans on a specific device use an array of VLANs to add. The master device may be configured without addressing by setting dhcp to false.

machine:
  network:
    interfaces:
      - interface: eth0
        dhcp: false
        vlans:
          - vlanId: 100
            cidr: "192.168.2.10/28"
            routes:
              - network: 0.0.0.0/0
                gateway: 192.168.2.1
