Configuring eth0 for Flexlm/Hostid for Fedora 16 x86_64


 

Problem

A customer reported that on his Fedora 16 x86_64 Linux workstation he could not obtain any hostid using the flexlm utility lmhostid or our hostinfo.

Workaround

Go to
/lib/udev/rules.d/71-biosdevname.rules
uncomment the line following..
"# uncomment the next line for biosdevname to be off by default".

Then, cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/
cp ifcfg-em1 ifcfg-eth0
Edit the "ifcfg-eth0" file to change "em1" to "eth0".

Finally Reboot and try the hostinfo or lmhostid again.
