I have installed a TWiki, according to procedure in TWikiVMJeOS topic of twiki.org site. Everything went ALMOST perfect except for the fact that the eth interface was not available, and of course, the site was not available.

I found the solution to the problem in the forum : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=980819, where it states: " Re: Cloned JeOS vmware vm does not have eth0 That's because the udev file is still holding the other eth0 and it's MAC address in there. Go to /etc/udev/rules.d/ and something like persistent-net.rules file, can't remember the number. You'll see something like this...

# PCI device 0x14e4:0x164c (bnx2) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:10:b9:b2:9a:01", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

# PCI device 0x14e4:0x164c (bnx2) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:10:b9:b2:9a:03", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth1"

The first two lines are the first NIC card is picked up from the old VM. Delete those and then change the last lines so it says eth0. So the file looks like this now..

# PCI device 0x14e4:0x164c (bnx2) SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTR{address}=="00:10:b9:b2:9a:03", ATTR{type}=="1", KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"

You will probably need a reboot.

What I usually do is just delete all the lines and the reboot. It will add the only NIC card in the system back in but the way I gave you will work too. "

I guess this is a problem that other people may fall into... and considering this release (VMWare) is kind-of "TWiki for dummies" (the reason why I have choose it) i thought it would be good to add this comment on the topic.
