Consistent Network Interface Naming

  For RHEL 7 the network interface names have changed from the legacy ethX style to a modern consistent naming scheme.

The details are described in the Dell Consistent Network Device Naming in Linux document. The Redhat networking guide also has a very useful chapter - Consistent Network Device Naming.

Supported Models

 
Model Name ID_NET_NAME_ONBOARD ID_NET_NAME_PATH SMBIOS
Dell Optiplex 745 enp2s0   enp2s0 2.3
Line: 63 to 65
  This is the command used in /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/71-biosdevname.rules, if this returns anything that is the interface name to use, if nothing is returned then it seems that the ID_NET_NAME_PATH name will be used instead.

Getting the real device name

The network component will refer to eth0 and has a network.device_eth0 resource which holds the real name for the device (e.g. em1). This can be useful for other components which need to know the real device name.
