device-eth0-does-not-seem-to-be-present,delaying initialization

Error:  "device-eth0-does-not-seem-to-be-present"

when I cloned one of my Linux virtual machine. So the cloned machine was not able to detect the NIC and every time I tried to restart the network it was throwing this error


The MAC id details for the NIC card is stored in the below mentioned file which is automatically created every time the machine boots.


If you open this file the contents would be like this

Delete this file

           rm -f /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules

Reboot the machine i.e  init 6

Now we can see difference in MAC id and NIC card name

Copy the new MAC id and NIC card name to your ifcfg-eth0 file

vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Restart the Network service using :  service network restart

check for IP details using " ifconfig"
