To resolve the issue, just remove the file /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules and reboot the machine. This file contains the MAC address details associated with the machine. If you don’t want to reboot the machine, run the below command :

udevadm trigger --subsystem-match=net

This command will trigger the rules again.

Enjoy 🙂
