Ordering of ports on EdgeCore SAF51015I is mixed up?
Closed, ResolvedPublicBUG


I am running VyOS 1.3-rolling-202012311144 on an EdgeCore SAF51015I box.

I noticed that the ordering of the ports seems slightly mixed up.

For example, the first physical port (eth1 per device label) does indeed correspond to eth0 in VyOS.

However, the second physical port (eth2 per device label) corresponds to eth5 in VyOS, not eth2?

Why the issue appeared?
Will be filled on close
Is it a breaking change?
Unspecified (possibly destroys the router)

I think this may be related to the MAC bound to the device. You can modify the configuration of vyos to adjust the order

This should not be a problem

for example

set interfaces ethernet eth2 hw-id <mac>

@victorhooi try to build a stable version for yourself, on the stable version is defined by udev rules
Or you can use way with binding hw-id as noticed @jack9603301 (but not mac)

@Dmitry Thank you for correcting. I may have got it wrong
