What is changing the Network settings from eth0 to eth1 ?

Even if you go into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and setup as eth0, and reboot box,it will change settings to eth1.

And it is causing a unstable network.

This box only has one ethernet card in  it.



Now days, when Fedora detects a different NIC from one it knew (right or wrong), it creates a new entry in: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

This is why you get messages in dmesg and at bootup that eth0 is being 'moved' to eth1.

It is reasonably safe to remove this file, plus /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth? and reboot.

If you are just doing DHCP, then udev will recreate the file, put the correct NIC into it, and set up a generic ifcfg-eth0 script.

Good luck!
