I found that ifup complained without the network file.  So I added it, 
as I occationally need ifdown and ifup.

I use hostnamectl to set the host name, but that does not directly 
impact ifcfg-eth0 that I need as well with hostname?

I am interested in setting MAC addresses,  I edit 

AND THEN still need to enter this altered MAC addr into ifcfg-eth0.
