My name is Mor, I am from the RHV networking team.
I am experiencing an issue with PCI device slot ID's and network interface
names that appear sometimes on my environment. I was advised to contact
this mailing-list in hope to get explanation or possible solution for this
The issue is the following:
On our oVirt 4.2 master environments, we create VM's from sealed template
that has only one vNIC attached to the ovirtmgmt network. Sometimes, and
now I am able to fully reproduce it on a specific VM, when I add new vNIC,
it gets allocated with lower PCI slot id, compared to what is allocated on
the default vNIC. For example, original one got slot id: 0xA, and newer one
got slot id: 0x3.
The order of slot ID's affects the network 'ethX' naming on the guest OS
(RHEL 7.4). Lower slot ID's gets numbered from 0 to N. The problem is that
if we had configuration for DHCP on 'eth0' and the order is changed, we can
lose connectivity to the host.
Can you please share your opinion on this issue?
