Configure Network for dhcp

Initially our base or vanilla OEL instance will use dhcp for network connections. Once we clone this instance into a database, application server, or management server we will want to switch this to a static ip. By default the Oracle Virtual Box will Nat traffic from your virtual machine out through your physical machines ip.If you have followed the steps in the previous tutorials your network card will most likely just not be connected. Follow these steps to set the network card to automatically connect.
