After doing a quick P2V on a Ubuntu system on boot, I receive the following:

[    3.170937] e1000: eth0: e1000_probe: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
[    3.181734] Driver 'sd' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
[    3.650518] e1000: eth1: e1000_probe: Intel(R) PRO/1000 Network Connection
[    3.660563] Driver 'sr' needs updating - please use bus_type methods
[   10.277039] udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth12                                        <-- ? What?
[   11.351089] udev: renamed network interface eth1 to eth13                                        <-- ? What?


udev is renaming the eth0 to eth12, and eth1 to eth13.  I have checked /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules   and removed it to have ubuntu rebuild it  but I still see the same.  

I have even rebuilt it to use the virutal nic MAC address and it still moves them.

Help?  I need these back to eth0 and eth1.

Did you get any error when trying to rename them?
I'm no linux expert but i'm pretty sure you can rename back those NICs

if you are talking about rebuilding the /etc/udev/rules.d/rules.d/70-persistent-net file, no errors in dmess or my logs, just the same 'renaming .....'

How many NICs did you have in the physical system ?

the original system was a Dell 2950 with 6 nics, 2 brodcom, and a 4 intel 1gb nics.
Problem resolved with firmware upgrades.
