Section Number and Name: 

8.9. Disabling Consistent Network Device Naming

Describe the issue: 

Document describes only to add the parameter net.ifnames=0 in GRUB 2 menu i.e. /etc/default/grub file. But this is not working. 

We need to add these two parameter net.ifnames=0 and biosdevname=0 parameter values to the file's GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX(/etc/default/grub) parameter and Rebuild the grub.

Suggestions for improvement: 

We have to make the changes in the Networking Guide according to the KBase article. Add both the parameter net.ifnames=0 and biosdevname=0 and then Rebuild the grub.

Additional information: 

We already having Kbase article for this. We need to follow the below article for modifying the Networking Guide.


I have tested this in our local lab.
