Re: RHEL4U5 and NIC flipping

I know at a minimum Dell, IBM and HP have the issue. I would expect its
actually a broadcom and/or intel nic (driver ?) issue. I have used ifrename
in the past to accomplish this, but it seems with rhel5 ifrename doesnt work
on boot. Is there a way to static-map a MAC to a particular interface in
rhel ?

I have a similar problem on the Dell 2950. I add the HWADDR and change the DEVICE in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

I am in the midst of building several new servers using RHEL4U4.  I had

I thought what better time to do it than right now when I have the
ability to deal with anything untoward.

Well, the untoward comes in the form of the nics getting flipped.  After
the update, I rebooted the machines and none of them came back online.
I had to make all of the eth0's eth1's and vice versa.  This has
occurred on HP and Dell servers.  Has anyone else seen this?  Just
