Linux Ethernet Interfaces
We have SLES 10 linux. We have 3 network cards 1 Realtek (on-board ) and 2 Intel Cards (add-ons ). When we install the system , we have noticed that system detects 3 cards as
eth0 - INTEL
eth1 - Realtek
eth2 - INTEL
Now what we expect is eth0 should be assigned to REALTEK. So we are running a script which modifies the /etc/udev/rules.d/30-net_persistent_names.rules file
as per our requirement. And do /etc/init.d/network restart. But ifconfig still shows the older assignments. Like eth0 - INTEL , eth1 - realtek and eth2 - INTEL.
Now the question is how to update the ifconfig assignments without reboot. Reboot may solve this problem but we wish to achieve it without reboot.
Is there anything we need to do with udev or so ?
Thanks in adv.
