Commands to Manage Network Service

You manage the network service by using systemd commands, such as systemd-networkd, systemd-resolvd, and networkctl.

To check the status of the network service, run the following command:

systemctl status systemd-networkd


* systemd-networkd.service - Network Service
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-networkd.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since Fri 2016-04-29 15:08:51 UTC; 6 days ago
     Docs: man:systemd-networkd.service(8)
 Main PID: 291 (systemd-network)
   Status: "Processing requests..."
   CGroup: /system.slice/systemd-networkd.service
           `-291 /lib/systemd/systemd-networkd

Because Photon OS relies on systemd to manage services, you must use the systemd suite of commands and not the deprecated init.d commands or other deprecated commands to manage networking.
