    Unhappy Network Interfaces moving

    Hi so I have a replacement untangle in build to replace old hardware.
    It seems every time I reboot the machine shifts the Ethernet interfaces around.
    Remapping makes no difference?

    Driving me insane

    Any ideas? Server is new Dell 540 with 16.3.2 installed

    There is a thread by skynight about writing a script. This is probably happening because Untangle has not moved to the new ways of describing eth0.

    Actually it has... It's using Debian default behavior. That behavior is just utterly and indescribably INSANE on mainboards that can't make up their minds on how the PCI bus should enumerate. This is largely OLD hardware by the way. Very new hardware that's all EFI works very differently and is far more complaint with Debian's new normal. It's the old stuff, and the not quite current stuff that has a foot in BIOS and EFI land both that have the hardest time.

    You have to make the .link files referenced in the Debian Wiki manually to fix this. These files map a specific device flag to a MAC address. Debian used to do this for us... it no longer does.
