I am using
CentOS 5.9. One of my servers recently had a malfunctioning NIC port. The software running on the server was hard-coded to use
eth0. The other physical NIC ports were fine and unused. The issue is now resolved but I'm curious, how hard would it be to convince CentOS that the other NIC port is
Is it just a matter of editing
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 and setting
HWADDR=<MAC Address of second NIC port> ?
