Kudos to the Leap 42.1/upgrade team

I just finished upgrading from 13.1 to Leap 42.1, and I wanted to extend kudos to the team.

A minor niggle was that the Ethernet interfaces went back to eth0 and eth1 from enp2s0 and enp3s0 - changes that I never understood and never questioned. I have a custom firewall script, so I had to adjust that, however, that is the only “issue” that I encountered with the upgrade process.

Unlike upgrades from previous versions, all my configuration files remained intact - DNS, samba, ntp server, and my dhcp server retained all their configuration settings - this is a very welcome change.

Thanks again!

As an added note:

I had to modify my ntp.conf file because my windows machines on my network were unable to successfully query the ntp server. The existing configuration file did work properly with the machines on my network in 13.1

I had to add the following lines:
controlkey 1
restrict 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 nomodify notrap
restrict 127.0.0.1

Apparently adding controlkey 1 was required since I encountered a problem trying to restart the ntp service. This problem was detailed in this thread - https://forums.opensuse.org/showthread.php/510847-quot-Failed-to-start-NTP-Server-Daemon-quot-in-journal?highlight=ntp

The windows machines were still unable to query the server until I added the last two lines. I added both at the same time, so I am unsure if both are necessary, however, they are detailed here - http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:Ch24:_The_NTP_Server
