Networking rules (udev)

Hi everybody!

I need to fix a MAC address of my network card to an specific interface. I have created a new /etc/udev/rules.d/network.rules with the following:

KERNEL="eth*", SYSFS{address}="00:30:1b:b6:11:cf", NAME="eth0"

Then I try to reboot, but it ignores the rule I have created. I tried too to write this line in /etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules but it didn't work either.

Do I have to configure anything else? What am I missing?

Thanks very much!!! All answers are appreciated!

I managed to fix it... I think the problem was that I only configured one of my network cards in udev rules,,, and then there were conflicts with the others already detected. I just created rules for all my cards and now it works perfect!

Thanks for the reading anyway!
