Ifconfig in shell script, not able to run on startup of Linux RedHat

YogeshDewangan@dell asked:

Open original thread
I want to run shell script which has "ifconfig" command written and placing output to another file.

Actually we dont know the ip address of the machine, we have deployed Linux on it. we want to know IP address of that machine once it gets boot up. so on boot up it will create one file with ifconfig output, so we can read ip address.

#mount shared drive
mount -t cifs -o username= ,password= // /mnt
#delete file if it already exists locally
if [ -f /$hostname.txt ];
	rm -f /$hostname.txt
#delete file if it exists in the share
if [ -f /mnt/$hostname.txt ];
	rm -f /mnt/$hostname.txt
#create new file
touch $hostname.txt
#redirect ip details to the file
#copy to the mounted share
cp /$hostname.txt /mnt/$hostname.txt
umount /mnt

i am able to run other commands in startup, but not only ipconfig command.

does anybody help me?
