Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 965842
network device configuration named 'Boot Disk'
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:33:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Did a virt install over HTTP. My ifcfg-eth0 contains:
Even if the install was done via downloading kernel/boot images over network, that seems an odd name.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
once so far
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install with virt-manager
2. Look at ifcfg-eth0
Please attach the logs as individual text/plain files.
The name is set by dracut generating the ifcfg file.
Just for information, in anaconda we use device name as NAME of a connection when dumping ifcfg files for connections created automatically by NM, eg we rename "Wired Connection 1" to "eth0" so that the dumped file is named ifcfg-eth0 instead of ifcfg-Wired_Connection_1).
So this is a dracut bug? I note that if I have multiple adapters, they all get 'Boot Disk' set for NAME.
Oh :) that name was copied and pasted since at least 4 years (git blame for the rescue :) ...
apparently nobody has used the ifcfg-* files since then :)
