The issue is i can't ping the Lom on my system after i modify the ifcfg file for a port on my emulex adapter (NIC/FCoE). I disabled firewall and masked iptables. BTW, I'm in a testing/automation environment. I know for previous version of redhat when i made a change to the ifcfg files, i had to delete the 70-persistent-net.rules file and reboot.
I'm fairly new to linux, redhat and suse, and i'm very new to redhat 7. My issue is when i edit the ifcfg-enp4s0f0 file for the nic on an emulex adapter(Nic/FCoE), then reboot the system, I'm unable to ping the onboard nic0, the same nic i use to telnet/ssh and ftp into the system.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server edition and I am modifying /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules to define my own mappings of ethernet interfaces to MAC addresses; that file is initially generated by rules in /lib/udev/rules.d/75-persistent-net-generator.rules at system installation time (or at the first boot, I actually don't know and it doesn't matter here).
I have a small 12.04 nas server running 4 x sata hdd raid 1+0 mdadm&lvm for data and the os is installed at the moment to 1 x usb ssd stick device.
I encountered to a problem when I purchased another usb ssd drive for mirroring the root/os device. The problem is that the usb devices are changing their device files ie.
I have two ethernet cards connected to a machine with F19. eth1 always comes up first during the kernel boot up and this screws up the default route as it is on eth0. I have the interfaces named the old way as eth0 and eth1 (with biosdevname=0 in the kernel) .
