We have a RHEL 5.5 box with 8 interfaces. And the
eth interface naming is flip flopping. Sometimes
eth0 comes up on physical port 7th, and sometimes on another physical port.
We want the naming to be as per the sequence of PCI BUS. I did the research and found that
This locations have the mac address of the
eth devices. So If I get "address" in sequence from this pci bus locations and put them in
ifconfig-eth7 in order of PCI BUS location, my
eth naming will be stable.
find /sys/devices/ -name "address"
but it does not bring any results. I don't know why…
Any help here?
