Changing eth2 to eth0

May 11, 2016
My server died a couple of days ago . I moved the hard drives to an identical server and now my Ethernet adapter is showing up as eth2 . In my /etc/network/interface file the vmbr0 is bonded the eth0 do I changed it to eth2 or should I rename eth2 to eth0 ? How can I rename it ? Is there any other configuration changes I need to make ?
