Unconfigured ethernet device shows up in YaST2 after installation of vmware-tools
This document (3522482) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
Delete the configured network device
Configure the remaining unconfigured ethernet device
Ensure the 'configuration name' field points to the MAC address of the ethernet device rather than using the PCI-BUS-ID.
To discover the the MAC address of the ethernet device use the command
Please note the MAC address needs to be put in as 'id-MAC' into the'configuration name' field (e.g., id-00:1c:23:94:7b:97). This ensures the creation of the apropriate configuration file using the MAC-address (/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-eth-id-MAC) instead of the PCI-BUS-ID.
In case this is skipped, the initialisation of the network will fail with the message:
ERROR: "no configuration found for ethX'
is executed manually.
Save the network settings and exit the YaST2 lan module.
