Doc Text:
.Network interface name changes in RHEL 8 In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, the same consistent network device naming scheme is used by default as in RHEL 7. However, some kernel drivers, such as `e1000e`, `nfp`, `qede`, `sfc`, `tg3` and `bnxt_en` changed their consistent name on a fresh installation of RHEL 8. However, the names are preserved on upgrade from RHEL 7. //To use a different interface naming scheme, see the link:https://access.redhat.com/solutions/4067471[How to in-place upgrade to RHEL 8 when using kernel NIC names, such as eth0, on RHEL 7] Knowledgebase article.
