Full Disclosure - I am attempting to restore a bare metal backup taken on Server #1 at my office to Server #2 at my offsite disaster recovery location, if that makes any difference.
The eth1 port is directly plugged into a port on the 188.8.131.52/stcdrs/wehco/Veeam server, which is where the bare metal backup has been restored to.
Below are the steps being taken to configure the network and the results:
Main Menu --> Configure network --> eth1 --> Manual (static)
Gateway: <Left Empty>
DNS: <Left Empty>
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
Failed to set static IP configuration on interface eth1.
