  • Brief description of the issue

    • When i boot using the ISO, NW Device name is changed from p12XXXX to ethX
      so during the recover, i set the IP by myself.

    After complete to recover, i reboot.
    But after reboot, NW Device name is still ethX.

    Please tell me how to fix it.
    Thank you and Best regards.

  • Work-around, if any

@kodiss The usage of biosdevname can be enforced on every hardware with "biosdevname=1". If the BIOS has no support, no network interface names are renamed. See https://www.suse.com/releasenotes/x86_64/SUSE-SLES/11-SP3/#fate-311333
Or, see also issue #951
You could try to define KERNEL_CMDLINE="biosdevname=1" in the /etc/rear/local.conf file and see what happens (the biosdevname executable is already copied to the ramdisk if available). So, be sure it is on your system of course.

Thank you for you support, I also know about biosdevname.
But i don't know the option for rear.

Thank you so much!

@kodiss I would appreciate feedback if what I proposed actually worked or not?
