Description

This test case makes sure that during Rawhide installation, network interfaces, both onboard and PCI add-in are named as per the new convention.

Setup

<TBD>

Howto Test

1. Verify that onboard network interfaces are named as described here - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_Onboard_Network_Interface_Names

2. Verify that PCI add-in network interfaces are described here - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:Testcase_PCI_Add-In-Network-Interace_Names

3. Check if interface configuration file ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created under /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

[root@fedora-14-r710 network-scripts]# ls ifcfg-em1
ifcfg-em1
[root@fedora-14-r710 network-scripts]# ls ifcfg-pci3#2_0
ifcfg-pci3#2_0

[root@fedora-14-r710 network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-em3
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
DEVICE=em3
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
TYPE=Ethernet
HWADDR=00:24:e8:2e:df:03
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no

[root@fedora-14-r710 network-scripts]# cat ifcfg-pci3#1
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
DEVICE='pci3#1'
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
TYPE=Ethernet
HWADDR=00:1b:21:44:63:40
ONBOOT=yes
USERCTL=no
PEERDNS=yes
IPV6INIT=no

Expected Results

1. Make sure that onboard device names are of the form emN during install time 2. Make sure that PCI add-in device names are of the form pci<slot>#<port> during install time 3. Make sure ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created after the installation is complete.
