Hi All,
I tried to recover a system to a new hardware. While booting the ISO, in the Section 55-migrate-network-device.sh I had the following problem:

My network-device mapping should be (see also screenshots):
OLD eth0 -> NEW eth3 (selection 1)
OLD eth1 -> NEW eth5 (selection 3)
OLD eth2 -> NEW eth4 (selection 2)

After the selection of the interface eth5, the last selection of the interface eth4 failed. As long as I could use the selection 1 -> 2 -> 3 it works.

In the script 55-migrate-network-device.sh I found the following bug in the loop over all the original macs:

On line 94:
unset "NEW_DEVICES[$n]"
there goes something wrong with the assignment of the array element and the selection numbers from the select command.

I replaced line 94 with this command:
NEW_DEVICES=( "${NEW_DEVICES[@]/$choice/}" )

An other possible solution:

After this change it works for me.

System info:
REAR Version rear-1.16.1-1
SLES 11.3

I never did something like this before, but I'll try to do.

@gsbit rear-1.16.1-git201408201003 contains your pull request - If you find some time could you test it out?

Sorry for the late response. I made some tests with the build rear-1.16.1-git201409051031 and it works fine.
