Ubuntu Network Interface Reset

posted 18 Dec 2012, 05:41 by Gareth Rylance
When using virtual machines (Hyper-V,Virtuabox) the mac address of the interface card presented to the OS may change and cause the interface name to increment (ethN -> ethN+1).

Deleting the line that contains the mac address in the file

/etc/udev/rules.d/XX-net_persistent_names.rules

should reset N.
