Consistent network names – virtual hardware

As described in an earlier post, we have recently enabled consistent network interface names under SL7 – for physical machines.

We have concluded that this is not practical to do for virtual hardware. The device names presented by the consistent network interface name schemeĀ  depend on the the underlying configuration of the virtual guests. As this configuration is not under our control, the device names will be unpredictable.
