Description Dave Sullivan 2009-01-19 12:05:43 EST
Description of problem:

RHEL5u2x86 running Xen Kernel

Udev rules do not appear to work.  The current system consists of HP DL380 with 2 onboard Broadcom NICs and two dual port external e1000 NICs.

When trying to set up udev rules to order the eth interfaces apparently the udev rules were not working.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHE5u2x86_64
2. Install Xen Kernel
3. Create udev rules

To prevent the ethernet interface from switching when adding new network card hardware,
create and use an additional udev rule at every cluster node which maintains interfaces to
MAC addresses.
