Network interface renaming fails

During install of a fai client I'm getting:

systemd-udevd: eth0: failed to rename network interface 2 from 'eth0' to 'enp2s0f0': Device or resource busy

After rebooting newly installed client the rename from eth to enp is successful which causes networking not to be enabled due to /etc/network/interfaces looking for eth0 as the networking device.

Any ideas why the rename fails during install but is successful on reboot?  How to fix this in fai setup?
