eth configuration disappering after configuration

hello all,

i have a problem with Fedora Red Hat ( , every time i restart the server, the eth configuration is deleted and replaced by a new one,

for example,

my configuration:

eth0 --> static ip address

i restart the server,

then eth0 file is deleted and replaced by eth1 with default configuration.

i try to create an eth0 and give it the static ip,
i stop the network i get at the end:

SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device

but when i start it back i get:

bringing up interface eth0: Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

how ever, if i configured the static ip to eht1 it will work perfectly. but i still get "SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device" when i stop it.

any suggestions please?

thanks in advance

run below command system-config-network & configure the network. There you configured eth0, or eth1 need select option active the boot device when computer start.
