SUSE change network device name eth(x) to eth(y)

Network device names are set by udev rules.

Follow these instructions from the local machine, not a remote connection.

rcnetwork stop

change eth1, to eth0,

SUBSYSTEM==”net”, ACTION==”add”, SYSFS{address}==”00:02:b3:22:84:f3″, IMPORT=”/lib/udev/rename_netiface %k eth0″

save and exit

Now execute the following command
/lib/udev/rename_netiface <old> <new>
/lib/udev/rename_netiface eth1 eth0

rcnetwork start
