- Red Hat Enterprise Linux
- Ethernet devices no longer appear as ethN (devices now show up as __tmpxxxx).
- Missing eth2, eth4.
- Add the ehternet devices MAC address to the correct /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethN file.
[iphands@handsbox ~]$ grep HWADDR /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 HWADDR=00:1A:A0:B4:05:BA [iphands@handsbox ~]$ ifconfig eth0 | grep HWaddr eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1A:A0:B4:05:BA
- Run ifconfig and look for __tmpxxxx devices.
- Look at the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth* scripts for HWADDR directives.
