Installing Media Flow Controller with CD-ROM or USB : Ethernet Naming Options

Ethernet Naming Options
Most installations require manual naming of the ethernet devices (interfaces). This is because the natural order is often confusing or not completely useful. The installation procedure offers four options to help you correctly identify and name your ethernet interfaces.
Note! You need to know what naming you want for all the ports before beginning installation. The default naming is based on the internal PCI hardware address that each device uses. The most important port to set up is eth0, because that name must be used for the port that the Web-based Management Console uses and for SSH to get to the command line interface (CLI). Juniper Networks suggests that the built-in ports use single digits, and for each add-in card, use numbers that start with multiples of ten. For example, if the first add-in card is a four port card, then use 10, 11, 12 and 13, and if the second add-in card is a two port card, then use 20 and 21.
Important! Media Flow Controller licenses are tied to either the Host ID of the system or the MAC address of the "eth0" interface. If you already have a license that is tied to a MAC address, then follow these steps to make sure that the correct interface is made eth0, or your license will not work.
Once the first phase of the installation is done, the following prompt gives you several options for configuring the interface names:
>>> Phase 1 Installation Done <<<
Press 1 to Reboot to complete the installation.
Press 2 to Halt. Installation will continue when rebooted.
Press 3 to Flash ethernet port LEDs.
Press 4 to Configure ethernet names interactively.
Press 5 to Specify device for eth0 and eth1.
Press 6 to Reset ethernet naming back to default.
The following sections describe the use of options 3 through 6. Once you have configured the interface names, then enter option 1 to reboot the machine and complete the installation.
