Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 101566
setting hwaddr and naming of ethX confuses initscripts
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:37:51 EDT
If you have HWADDR= in ifcfg-eth and the device for them being eth0 and eth1
respectively, things get confused (complaints about device already existing) if
the modules are loaded such that the device you want to be eth0 is currently
eth1 and vice versa.
Fixed, will be in 7.29-1.
Fix works for me.
