RHEL8 – Where did my network scripts go ?

In RHEL8 the old network scripts have been deprecated. However, if you want you can addd them back in.

Red Hat have provided them in a package called network-scripts

$ sudo yum install network-scripts.x86_64

This adds all your favourite scripts back in

$ sudo rpm -ql network-scripts
