Description Radek Novacek 2014-02-12 12:32:38 UTC
NetworkManager supports creating connections that has assigned device identified by either MAC address or device name.

OpenLMI now only supports the identification by MAC address now and lacks the support for device name.

Comment 1 Radek Novacek 2014-02-12 14:55:24 UTC
Fixed in openlmi-networking-0.2.2-3.el7.

Comment 4 Radek Novacek 2014-04-17 11:23:57 UTC
This is not about virtual devices. When creating new ethernet connection, one can either specify MAC address of the device that will be used or its name directly.

You can verify this running this two commands:

nmcli connection add type ethernet con-name Test1 mac <MAC address of eth1>
nmcli connection add type ethernet ifname eth1 con-name Test2

and verifying that both LMI_IPAssignmentSettingData instances are associated with eth1 LMI_IPNetworkConnection.

Comment 5 Vladimir Benes 2014-04-17 11:44:32 UTC
I can successfully up connections linked with device via both mac and device name. Test case added.
