We are using script to fix issue with network interface numbering sequence. Issue has been described in Microsoft KB823206. So far we have partial solution as indicated on this webpage:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/bugs/BugInKB823206.aspx

The problem we are facing is that script is perfect for most network cards, but some of our HP servers have dual broadcom based multifunction cards (NC371i) onboard and those are detected differently (no info for Bus, Device, Function in the registry as other NIC's), see attached export from Registry. They are always assigned wrong order: Onboard1 is always "Local Area Connection 2" and Onboard2 is always "Local Area Connection".

Is there a way to expand the existing script to include check for adapters with Bus0, Device0 and Function0 and for those two it will assign connection name based on the MAC address?

Ex.: Smaller of the two MAC addresses is onboard1 - "Local Area Connection"

Or if there is any other idea how to do it?
