Upgrading from openSUSE 11.1 to 11.2, continued

(1 comment)

After more or less successfully upgrading three very different machines online and at least ending up with usable network afterwards, I dared to upgrade the machine in the data center at the other end of town. And promptly ran into bnc#546575, which earned me a trip to said data center as the machine wasn't accessible by network anymore.

If you want to upgrade a machine with a fixed network configuration, better check if /etc/udev/rules/70-persistent-net.rules contains the string ATTRS{address} and change it to ATTR{address} before starting the update.
