Re: Re-Order Nic Cards

There are a couple ways.

The brute force way is to physically remove all NICs, reboot, and allow Kudzu to remove configs for all three. Then reinstall the cards, allow Kudzu to reconfigure the cards, and enter the correct IP addresses, etc.

The better way is to edit the ifcfg-ethx files which are located in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/. The sample (filename = ifcfg-eth0) below shows what I am talking about.

# Realtek|RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ DEVICE=eth0 BOOTPROTO=static BROADCAST= HWADDR=00:50:8D:4A:0C:30 IPADDR= NETMASK= NETWORK= ONBOOT=yes TYPE=Ethernet

Backup all the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-ethx scripts. Stop all devices with ifdown, or stop the network service. Change the device line and the file name of each of these files to match what you want. For example if you want this device to be eth2, change the filename to ifcfg-eth2, and the device line to DEVICE=eth2.

Then restart the network, or the individual devices using ifup.

That should take care of it.

To make a long story short I have installed/re-installed various NIC's in my FC Box, and now I am in a position where I have and eth1, eth2, eth4

Is there a way, and more so what is the best way to re-order those NIC's so I again have an eth0, eht1, eth2
