Description Henry Harris 2005-08-16 19:13:15 EDT
Description of problem: With a RHEL 4 system up and running, we presented 
additional LUNs to a FC HBA.  We then ran kudzu to update 
the /etc/sysconfig/hwconf file so as to get the new scsi target/lun id info.  
We noticed that one of the ethernet ports (eth9) was no longer configured.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 4 update 1? (2.6.9-11 kernel)

How reproducible:
We have seen this on more than one machine.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Bring up system with RHEL 4
2. Present additional LUNs to FC HBA
3. Run kudzu
4. Run ifconfig
Actual results:
eth9 removed from ifconfig

Expected results:
update /etc/sysconfig/hwconf but no effect on existing configuration

Need more information on what sort of hardware configuration you have on the
box. What does /etc/sysconfig/hwconf look like before & after?

Note that in the case of adding SCSI *devices*, running kudzu won't actually
change any configuration on the system that's used by anything...
