I have several network interfaces connected to different netwroks on my Red Hat server. I have added a new link and configured it - /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth4. Now, when I am doing ifconfig eth4 down / up the ip I had set is not written on the interface the only way to set those definitions is by service network restart, which restart's the other interfaces.
is there any way to start only the specific interface with it's new definitions ?
I am not familiar with the path you have mentioned. I have configured eth4 interface with static ip at: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth4
any way I forgot to use the ifconfig command to set the ip definition in realtime
solved my problem. thanks for the bother.

Have you configured /etc/network/interfaces with the static ip for eth4 ?
