RSA Security Analytics Series 4S Appliance
|Issue||RSA Security Analytics core device cannot be pinged after swapping out disks to complete RMA|
Connectivity issues occur after an RSA Security Analytics Appliance RMA.
Appliance appears to be started normally, however, it cannot be pinged nor ping any other hosts that are even in the same subnet.
The ifconfig command shows no interface.
the dmesg command shows eth0, eth1, etc. instead of em1, em2, etc.
|Cause||The OS in the new appliance is not configured to use emX as the interface name and hence the interface becomes unavailable as it cannot locate the configuration file, ifcfg-emX.|
To resolve the issue, perform the following steps:
If the interface name remains the same, backup and delete /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and reboot the appliance so the file can be regenerated.
Alternatively, follow the steps below to work around the issue temporarilty as "emX" naming convention is the new standard for the current Series 4S appliances.
If you are unsure of any of the steps above or experience any issues, contact RSA Support and quote this article ID for further assistance.
