eth2 and dead lan after a disk cloning


You clone a disc and installing it on another computer:

  1. The network doesn't work
  2. A new eth2 appear in the list of network connections

This happens because on the second computer the nic has a different mac, so, the old nic is retained and a new one is added.


Delete /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules and restart
