This test case makes sure that during Rawhide installation, network interfaces, both onboard and PCI add-in are named as per the new convention.
- Make sure that the Hardware Requirements are met.
How to test
- Switch to a shell by pressing
- Verify that onboard network interfaces are named as described here - Verify that onboard interfaces are named as emN
- Verify that PCI add-in network interfaces are described here - Verify that PCI add-in interfaces are named as pci<slot>#<port>
- When the network configuration wizard appears, configure
em1and any of the available add-in PCI interface.
- Complete the installation process, after the system reboots, login to the system. Check if interface configuration file ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
- Make sure that onboard device names are of the form emN during install time
# ls ifcfg-em1 ifcfg-em1
- Make sure that PCI add-in device names are of the form pci<slot>#<port> during install time
# ls ifcfg-pci3#2_0 ifcfg-pci3#2_0
- Make sure ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created after the installation is complete.
