I've seen it on kernel upgrades, when the kernel changes the order of buses to probe. E.g.: http://blog.learningtree.com/rhel-7-changes-where-did-my-network-interface-go/ https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2592561 My workaround was to set up NIC teaming, and at boot-time, put all detected NICs into the bonded device. Not for everyone, but suitable for us. > Thanks, > > SteveT -- Brian Reichert <reich...@numachi.com> BSD admin/developer at large
