systemd-network-generator.service, systemd-network-generator - Generate network configuration from the kernel command line
systemd-network-generator.service is a system service that translates ip= and the related settings on the kernel command line (see below) into systemd.network(5), systemd.netdev(5), and systemd.link(5) configuration files understood by systemd-networkd.service(8) and systemd-udevd.service(8). Files are generated in /run/systemd/network/. Note: despite the name, this generator executes as a normal systemd service and is not an implementation of the systemd.generator(7) concept.
This tool understands the following options: ip=, rd.route=, rd.peerdns= — translated into systemd.network(5) files. ifname=, net.ifname-policy= — translated into systemd.link(5) files. vlan=, bond=, bridge=, bootdev= — translated into systemd.netdev(5) files. See dracut.kernel(7) and systemd-udevd.service(8) for option syntax and details.
