Description aaron fabbri 2010-05-20 21:42:47 UTC
Description of problem: In my /etc/sysconfig/network-scriptslthough I have HWADDR set to a valid MAC addrs for eth0 and eth1, but they fail to come up: # /etc/init.d/network restart Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring. [FAILED] Bringing up interface eth1: Device eth1 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring. [FAILED] Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Install of RHEL6.0-20100422.12-Server-x86_64 How reproducible: Not sure. Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install RHEL6. 2. (maybe required?) Change order of ethernet devices, e.g. by swapping PCI slots. or, just try to swap interfaces by swapping HWADDR= lines in ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1. 3. reboot or /etc/init.d/network restart Actual results: # /etc/init.d/network restart Shutting down loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up loopback interface: [ OK ] Bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring. [FAILED] Bringing up interface eth1: Device eth1 has different MAC address than expected, ignoring. [FAILED] Expected results: Eth0 and eth1 should come up properly, according to documentation in : http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6-Beta/html/Deployment_Guide/s1-networkscripts-interfaces.html Additional info:

Please attach your configuration, including /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules.

I wiped the system and reverted to RHEL 5.5. I'd suggest having someone else try the reproduction steps I listed.
