NIC enumeration ignoring udev rules on HPC Solution

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After applying udev rules ( on a system with kusu (pcm) installed, NIC enumeration is not obeying the udev rules.  Rather 'tmp' interfaces like the following are being enumerated:

    dev7498   Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr B4:99:BA:YY:YY:YY  
    dev11351  Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr B4:99:BA:XX:XX:XX
  • Loss of network connectivity across intefaces that have udev rules

  • On boot, the HWADDR directive is being appended to /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethX files:

    # HWADDR=B4:99:BA:XX:XX:XX
