Ethernet Port Boot Order and Device Naming

This section contains information about the boot order and device naming for the Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back panel of the server. For location information, see Back Panel Connector Locations.

Ethernet Port Boot Order

The order in which the BIOS detects the Ethernet ports during server boot is listed below.


Note -  You can change the boot priority using the Boot Device Priority screen available in the Boot menu of the BIOS Setup Utility.
  1. NET 0

  2. NET 1

  3. NET 2

Ethernet Port Device Naming

The device naming for the Ethernet interface is reported differently by different interfaces and operating systems. The following table shows the BIOS (physical) and operating system (logical) naming convention for the interface. This naming convention might vary depending on the conventions of your operating system and which devices are installed in the server.


Note -  Naming used by the interfaces might vary from that listed below depending on which devices are installed in the system.
Port
Solaris
Linux 6
Linux 7
Windows (example default names, see note below)
Net 0
igb0
eth0
enp1
Ethernet
Net 1
igb1
eth1
enp2
Ethernet 2
Net 2
igb2
eth2
enp3
Ethernet 3

Note -  For Windows, port names such as Ethernet, Ethernet 2, and Ethernet 3 are used by default. However, actual port naming is based on the order of enumeration, typically during operating system installation. Additionally, Windows allows you to rename the ports to meet application-specific needs.
