Linux: Gentoo rename an interface

If you accidentally set the network up with the wrong name you can do the following:

When setting up Gentoo called the network net.enps03
Network device is actually net.enp0s3

Using rc

rc-service delete net.enps03
mv /etc/init.d/net.enps03 /etc/init.d/net.enp0s3
rc-service add net.enp0s3 default

rc-service net.enp0s3 start
