Changing network interface names on RedHat

view story
linux-howto

http://serverfault.com – I have a DELL server running RedHat EL 6.3 with two 1G network interfaces, and two 10G network interfaces. Following this note, I have successfully renamed the two 1G network interfaces that used to be called em1 and em2. However, I cannot rename the 10G network interfaces using this method. (Those are called p4p1 and p4p2, and do not start with em.) How can I rename the network interface name of my 10G network interfaces on RedHat EL 6.3? (HowTos)
