Missing network interface after cloning a Ubuntu template on ESX vmware server

I was cloning some Ubuntu 8.04 LTS machines from a template i made and everything went fine, except the kernel could not find my eth0 and mapped a new eth1.

After some thinking and testing, i found out that the device manager’s had the old MAC address in the udev rules file. (ofcoz, doh!)

In pure happiness, i deleted the lines (except for the comments) in the rules file located here:

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

and rebooted. and BUM! the network is running perfectly and the persistent rule file is regenerated.

Helpfull reading on udev:
