Recently we renamed our DMZ, PUBLIC and PRIVATE interfaces on our BorderManager v3.8 server to DMZ, PUBLIC and PRIVATE as per Craigs book.

We have found if we make a change using INETCFG and it prompts to Reinitialize System then those boards get renamed in NETINFO.CFG and TCPIP.CFG to:
PUBLIC_EII
PRIVATE_EII
DMZ_EII

This of course causes huge issues ... the firewall filters etc are stuffed!

To resolve this we then edit both of those files manually and strip out _EII, reinitialize system and all is well again.

Does anyone know what might be causing this to happen everytime?
