Linux – Device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

One of small problem usually happens post we either deploy/clone a Linux virtual machine is got such an error as subject due to network interface configuration mismatch setting.

In most of cases we found the network interface config become eth2, eth3, and so on. But, the original was eth0/eth1. From the operational itself it won’t impact anything by having that setting, however it would be good if we can standardize so in the future we can have similar network configuration for entire of our virtual machines.

All you may need to do is only about to execute one single command along with reboot activity.

Here is the recipe;

rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Then reboot and evenatually you will be having all the things back to original setting.
