We recently noticed our 10gE NIC was reporting as devXXXXX. Does anyone know why this would be given this name as opposed to ethX?
Our System: The issue occurred on two separate servers. We are running RHEL4.9 & RHEL 4.5 which are on separate networks.
I know that I can change the name using nameif but it has to be run before the interface is up or else it fails.
