Hello, firstable, excuse me for my lack in english.

New to this forum, I have a question about SLES 11 in VMWare ESXi 4.1 build 582267 using VMXNET3 as network card.

Here is the situation :

- The operating System
Code:
cat /etc/SuSE-brand
SLES
VERSION = 11
CO-BRANDS = SLE openSUSE

cat /etc/SuSE-release
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11
PATCHLEVEL = 1

This VM has 4 NIC using VMXNET3 'hardware'.

The problem is :

If I use YAST2 with the curse interface to configure the NIC, the card name does not change and stay "VMXNET3 Ethernet Controller," but if I use YAST2 in command line (yast2 lan edit id=0 bootprot=static ip=....), then the NIC name changes to "Ethernet Network Card" (Carte réseau Ethernet in french).

The NIC does not lost any funtionnality but it puzzles me.

I don't know why this occurs and how to change the NIC name, I have already restart the VM, restart VMware Tools, etc., with no effects.

Can someone help me ? TIA
