KERNEL=="eth*", SYSFS{address}=="AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF", NAME="eth1"

should work. Try to use lower case only. Maybe eth1 is used by something
else ? What about using wlan0 or something ?

A better / cleaner way to rename interfaces is /etc/iftab ( man
iftab ) :

An example is

wlan0    mac AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

For more infos search the gentoo forum ( ) for
iftab and you will plenty of posts about it.

Best regards,
