At work, we’re using ZeroShell on a machine that has three network interfaces:
ETH00 is non-functional (motherboard interface)
ETH01 is our WAN interface
ETH02 is our LAN interface
We want to set up a second backup machine that we can bring up if the current machine fails. That machine has two network interfaces:
ETH00 will be the WAN interface
ETH01 will be the LAN interface
We have successfully transferred the active profile from the first machine to the second, but it doesn’t work for obvious reasons.
What I’d like to know is if there is a simple way to resolve this. That is, we would like the second machine’s interfaces to be called ETH01 and ETH02 to match the first machine so that the second machine would just boot up properly.
Alternatively, if there is some way to provide a bit of indirection from the physical interfaces, that would be nice. That is, instead of calling the interfaces ETH01 and ETH02 I would like to call them something more meaningful, like WAN and LAN. If that is possible, that that would likely become one way to resolve the problem.
