I want to inform you that the appliance linked here OpenNebula 4.8 ESX
Sandbox <http://marketplace.c12g.com/appliance/53e4e9258fb81d6a82000007> has
no eth0 available. I was using VMware ESXi. The result was the same when
running it via Virtualbox. Only br0 availble. It gave me a lot headache to
find out why since eth0 is standard nowadays, a must have one. I thought
that when building the appliance, then he/she must have at least one
ethernet card attached physically, right?

I saw that /etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-eth0 was there, using dhcp
as bootproto. Running ifcofig eth0 up showed up a failure message.

I found the answer why while reading an ebook, I noticed that there is a
mention that you need to remove the
/etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules in order to prevent the network
interface coming up as an interface other than eth0. So, I did just as
told, restart the network service, and voila! It works, the eth0 is now
there and enabling me to login to Sunstone.

The funny thing is, that ebook I read and found the answer is an ebook
about OpenStack :)

Perhaps you guys should add a note about this and howto overcome the
missing eth0 in the appliances.
