eth reordering

Post by rip_someday » 2008/08/26 19:08:20

Hello.

I'm using CentOS 4.4
And I'm trying to get do reordering for my ethN interfaces.

I've created to /etc/udev/rules.d/52-ethmap.rules containing this:

BUS="pci", ID="0000:01:03.0", NAME="eth0"
...
BUS="pci", ID="0000:00:02.0", NAME="eth5"

But it doesn't work. renaming is not happenning

I've swapped eth2 and eth4 in rules to be sure that reorder will surely happen
and tested that with udevtest. it says that eth2 will became eth4 and vice versa.
but on the boot nothing happens, order is the same as it was.

What can I do with this?

Thanks for any help.

You might want to look in /etc/udev/rules.d for the MAC address as their may be another file in there overriding the settings you are placing in /etc/udev/rules.d/52-ethmap.rules

no, there aren't any rules with MACs in rules.d.
