Netplan has been introduced by Ubuntu developers in Ubuntu 17. 10. In this particular new approach, we no longer use  /etc/network/interfaces   document to configure IP address instead we use a YAML file. The particular default configuration files of Netplan are found under  /etc/netplan/   directory. In this brief guide, we are going to learn to configure static and dynamic IP address in  Ubuntu 18. 04 LTS   server and desktop editions.

Configure Static IP Address In Ubuntu 18. 04 LTS Server

Let us find out the default network configuration document:

  $ ls /etc/netplan/  
50-cloud-init. yaml

As you can see, the default network configuration file is  50-cloud-init. yaml   and it is obviously the YAML file.

Now, let check the contents of this file:

 $ cat /etc/netplan/50-cloud-init. yaml

Add the configuration for available interfaces like eth0: and eth1:

 network: ethernets: eth0: addresses: - 192. 168. 1 . 9/24 dhcp: false gateway4: 192. 168. 1 . one nameservers: addresses: - 192. 168. 1 . 1 - 8. 8. 8. 8 - 8. 7. 4. 4 search: [] eth0: addresses: - 192. 168. 1 . 9/24 dhcp: fake version: 2
