Last modified: 2010-12-01 12:31:13 EST
Description of problem:
Cloned a linux image with NICS eth0, eth1, and eth2.
Afterwards, when viewing the cloned image, the NICS are renamed
eth3, eth4, and eth5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
root@rhel601 ~]# uname -a
Linux rhel601 2.6.32-44.2.el6.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Jul 21 12:48:32 EDT 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@rhel601 ~]# rpm -qa|grep virt
Fixed by editing the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.
Deleted the eth0, eth1, and eth2 entries. Changed the eth3, eth4, and eth5 entries to eth0, eth1, and eth2, respectively.
