Please close this report.

The change to systemd/udev changed the naming for network devices.  Many 
software packages, such as maple, use the network device name as part of

The change on the network device name caused these applications to fail. 
  The manufacturer has no solution for this, so, I have to change each 
system and maintain these changes across upgrades, etc.
