Description Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-06-17 14:15:48 CEST
Predictable network interface names support is activated in Ubuntu 16.04. As several of our scripts rely on interface names, it will be deactivated in UCC 3, so that the known naming conventions like eth0 apply.

Fixed in

r70318 ucc-pxe-boot 8.0.0-2.46.201606171418
r70319 univention-ucc-grub 4.0.0-2.12.201606171428
Comment 2 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2016-06-29 14:15:11 CEST
please also add support for ucc/pxe/predicteablenicnames in the ucr module conffiles/uccpxeboot.py
Comment 3 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-06-30 16:38:09 CEST
The ucr module already has a function to evaluate true/false variables. In order not to complicate that code, i adapted the ucr variable name to ucc/pxe/traditionalinterfacenames to match the ucr module semantics

r70744 ucc-pxe-boot 8.0.0-3.47.201606301635
Comment 4 Felix Botner univentionstaff 2016-07-14 13:15:26 CEST
please a default (true) for ucc/pxe/traditionalinterfacenames in the postinst and remove the "the value is 'true' by default" from the description (default if var is unset is false).
Comment 5 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2016-07-22 12:31:08 CEST
Value set in postinst, and i updated the UCRv description.
