22.6.2. Quick Reference for Adding Network Devices

There are several basic tasks for adding a network interface on IBM System z.
  • Load the device driver.
  • Create the group device.
  • Configure the device.
  • Set the device online.
  • Define the alias (if needed).
  • Create a configuration script.
  • Activate the device.
The following sections provide basic information for each task of each IBM System z network device driver. Working With the LCS Device Driver

The LAN channel station (LCS) device driver supports OSA-2 Ethernet/Token Ring, OSA-Express Fast Ethernet in non-QDIO mode, and OSA-Express High Speed Token Ring in non-QDIO mode. For z990, the LCS driver also supports Gigabit Ethernet in non-QDIO mode (including 1000Base-T).
Based on the type of interface being added, the LCS driver assigns one of two base interface names: eth n for OSA-Express Fast Ethernet and Gigabit Ethernet tr n for Token Ring, where n is an integer that uniquely identifies the device. n is 0 for the first device of that type, 1 for the second, and so on.
