How to remove eth0_rename linux

There are multiple approaches to eliminate this problem -

1. A GUI based approach - If you are using the Gnome
desktop which has the networking tool, the solution is
straight forward. Go to the System -> Network ->
Administration menu. Select the appropriate interface,
and rename it from using that tool.

2. A Command line approach - is as per the guidelines
listed in the post here. However to solve this specific problem
you need to follow the specific steps. Do a ifconfig on the
interface -


$> ifconfig eth0_rename

This should have some information like hw addr: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff
Use this hardware address to search the entry within this
file -


vi /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

and change the name of that interface to whatever you want -
E.g. eth0. Please note that the name eth0_rename might have
come out due to wrong renaming of interfaces, and hence you might
see multiple entries with the same interface name in the file.

Save and quit the file. Reboot the machine and your woes will
be all gone.

Good day.

Not so much a networking tool as the others but something to bear in mind anyway. Facebook – I only ... I don't use Facebook as a networking tool for coaching.
