We sometimes have a need to override the NIC name on an HV within a compute zone (e.g. use eth4 for a specific VM public VLAN instead of say eth1).
When the definitions for NIC names (network joins) are defined at the compute zone level, you're able to also define them at the HV level, but whether or not they're used seems to be very random. It'll work for one HV, but then not the next one for no apparent reason.
It would make sense to me to have the more specific allocation (i.e. the HV setting) override the compute zone's setting.
