How to turn on the network connection during Oracle Linux 7 startup.

First of all check the network interface configuration file located in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts folder (in my case it’s the ifcfg-enp0s8 file):

[root@orclprod ~]# more /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-enp0s8
TYPE=Ethernet
BOOTPROTO=none
DEFROUTE=yes
IPV4_FAILURE_FATAL=no
IPV6INIT=no
IPV6_AUTOCONF=yes
IPV6_DEFROUTE=yes
IPV6_PEERDNS=yes
IPV6_PEERROUTES=yes
IPV6_FAILURE_FATAL=no
NAME=LAN
UUID=a0eb20a5-fa38-4e97-b885-05099ccd0178
DEVICE=enp0s8
ONBOOT=yes
IPADDR=192.168.56.101
PREFIX=24

Be sure that ONBOOT setting is set on yes – this should do the trick.
Be aware that while configuring the network on command line, the GUI could not catching up with the updates you made. It will be synchronised by rebooting the server (network interface restart should also fix this issue).
