Finally found a solution for the problem that Ubuntu guests sometimes loose the eth0 networking interface. Solution can be found here:

I simply renamed the file and rebooted by:

cd /etc/udev/rules.d
sudo mv 70-persistent-net.rules 70-persistent-net.rules_old
sudo reboot

  1. Works! Thanks a bunch. Would have had to reinstall the OS if I didn’t find this.
