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

  1. Make sure that the Hardware Requirements are met.

How to test

  1. Switch to a shell by pressing Control+Alt+F2.
  2. Verify that onboard network interfaces are named as described here - Verify that onboard interfaces are named as emN
  3. Verify that PCI add-in network interfaces are described here - Verify that PCI add-in interfaces are named as pci<slot>#<port>
  4. When the network configuration wizard appears, configure em1 and any of the available add-in PCI interface.
  5. 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

Expected Results

  1. Make sure that onboard device names are of the form emN during install time
    # ls ifcfg-em1
    ifcfg-em1
  2. 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
  3. Make sure ifcfg-emN and ifcfg-pci<slot>#<port> files are created after the installation is complete.
    # cat ifcfg-em3
    # Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
    # for the documentation of these parameters.
    DEVICE=em3
    BOOTPROTO=dhcp

    HWADDR=00:24:e8:2e:df:03
    ONBOOT=yes
    USERCTL=no
    PEERDNS=yes
    IPV6INIT=no
    
    # cat ifcfg-pci3#1
    # Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
    # for the documentation of these parameters.
    DEVICE='pci3#1'
