Information in this document applies to any platform.


Wrong NIC status in OVM Manager for certain nics.

When a server is discovered / rediscovered the correct status is shown in the OVM GUI.

However, when the status of the physical NIC changes (pull/reinsert cable), This is not reflected in the GUI until the server is rediscovered

The Adminserver.log file shows messages like:

<AdminServer> <EventProcessor-5> <> <> <24ae592c-ea2b-4cb1-99f7-3da83ffd6392-00000004> <1604928379486> <BEA-000000> <Unable to find Ethernet interface: 2p1>

However, the NIC is actually named p2p1. Thus the leading 'p' is lost
