This question already has an answer here:
Facing an issue where there is a mismatch in the interface name.
While installation the rename happens from
eth0 to enp3s0 noticed in
/var/log/installer/sys.log which also generates ethernet name as enp3s0 in
/etc/netplan/01-netcfg.yaml. The strange thing is once the server boots up the rename happen from
eth0 to ens160 and no change is made in netcfg file causing the interface to be down.
I have used packer installation for the same.
But on the other hand when I install ubuntu 18 directly from the UI by following all the manual steps there is no issue as such and the rename is similar to the one while installation and then booting up which is
eth0 to ens160.
On both the above occasions the installation is done on VMware.
