Description Allen Berg 2007-08-15 17:32:04 UTC
Description of problem:
We have created a kickstart for our Sun Fire x4100 servers.  When we boot them 
up and look at the network config eth2 says that its eth0 eth0 says that its 
eth2, eth3 says its eth1 and eth3 says that its eth1.  eth2 and eth1 are Intel 
and eth0 and eth3 are NVIDIA cards.  What has likely happened is that the 
broadcom and nvidia drivers have been loaded in the wrong order.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 5.0

How reproducible: auto detect using kickstart

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  run kickstart 
2. run network configuration
Actual results:
eht0 is detected as eth2
Eth2 is detected as eth0
eth1 is detected as eth3
eth3 is detected as eth1

Expected results:

eth0 = eth0
eth2 = eth2
eth1 = eth1
eth3 = eth3

Additional info:  We can manually set them up using the network configuration 
tool but that does not allow us to automate the deployment and build of the 
kickstart.  How can we get the nvidia and broadcom drivers to load in the 
proper order?

This is IMHO rather anaconda bug. From date I'm just guessing it is RHEL4.

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2011-01-24 15:01:45 UTC
anaconda is no longer an approved component for RHEL4.
