Ethernet Device Naming

This section contains information about the device naming for the one 10-Gigabit Ethernet port (labeled NET 0) on the back panel of the server. For location information, see Back Panel Connector Locations.

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.
Windows (example default names, see note below)
  • Linux 6 - eth0

  • Linux 7 - enp1


Note -  For Windows, port naming such as Ethernet is used by default. Windows allows you to rename the ports to meet application-specific needs.
