Why are interface names cleansed of everything except letters and numbers? Is there a way to get the actual interface name?
I'm beginning to use puppet to manage a Windows server, and am trying to update some network settings via
netsh. However, the
interfaces fact has all of the characters replaced that are not latin letters and digits by
Facter::Util::IP.alphafy, so I get
Local_Area_Connection instead of
Local Area Connection. I assume I should be using something else to get the interface names?
