Doc Text:
Dell machines using smbios 2.6 or later use the biosdevname utility for device naming in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. Previously when configuring hypervisor networking on machines using biosdevname for device naming the error "cp:cannot stat'/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules':No such file or directory" was displayed. The hypervisor has been updated and this error is no longer encountered when configuring networking on machines that use biosdevname.

Comment 3 Meng Liang 2012-10-08 05:50:46 EDT
The files under /etc/udev/rules.d/ are:
[root@Test-123 admin]# ls /etc/udev/rules.d/
12-vdsm-lvm.rules       71-persistent-node-net.rules  91-drm-modeset.rules
60-raw.rules            80-kvm.rules                  98-kexec.rules
70-persistent-cd.rules  90-hal.rules                  99-fuse.rules
Comment 5 Meng Liang 2012-10-08 06:06:43 EDT
This problem did not happen on RHEV Hypervisor 6.3-20120926.0.el6_3, Thus I set it as a regression.
Comment 9 Meng Liang 2012-10-08 22:26:21 EDT
The bug is fixed on the build hypervisor6-6.3-20121005.0.auto270.el6_3.iso. The network can be set without error message, though there is no file 70-persistent-net.rules in /etc/udev/rules.d/.

Is it the expected result?
Comment 10 Fabian Deutsch 2012-10-09 05:05:42 EDT

thanks for testing and to see that it's fixed. And yes - 70-persistent-net.rules is only generated when biosdevname is not beeing used.

Comment 17 haiyang,dong 2012-10-29 08:26:25 EDT
Test version:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install a clean rheh
2. set network by DHCP 

The network can be set without error message "cp:cannot stat'/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules':No such file or director",
so this bug has been fixed, change bug status to VERIFIED.
Comment 18 haiyang,dong 2012-12-26 07:13:28 EST
so follow steps of comment 17 to re-test on version
rhev-hypervisor6-6.4-20121212.1.el6 with Dell smbios 2.6+ machine , bug was fixed on it.
