Ubuntu 9.04 Server network not working

Guest was instaled in nat mode. However, when network mode was changed to bridge mode, network stop functioning. I found that the problem was related with UDEV due the following message: udev: renamed network interface eth0 to eth1.

On MacOS X Leopard this problem doesn't happen.

This is actually not a bug of VirtualBox. When changing the network interface, most probably the MAC address of the virtual network interface changed. The guest udev daemon uses the MAC address to assign a physical network interface to the same Linux network device. This is a known behavior and for VMware network devices there are exceptions defined in the udev rules.
