i have a fedora VM, when i copy it to a new ESX. the network does not working. i log into fedora, and run /usr/sbin/system-config-network-gui. in devices tab, i can see device name is eth0 and is not active. in hardware tab, the actual adapter is eth2.
in CLI, when i run "ifconfig -a", i can only see eth2.
i can config eth2 and make it work. but how to make the adapter name from eth2 to eth0? maybe there are hidden adapters, and how to remove them?
Could be your virtual switch setup on the ESX host. We have a lot of RedHat and CentOS based VMs that have had no issues. Unless you call setting the Ethernet card on the wrong vswitch. Physical to virtual conversion has worked great on all of our hosts as well.
