Bug Description

During installation of Ubuntu server (18.04 dev) on HP server with two network interfaces on-board I faced with inconvenience in "Configure the network" section. Configurator show me next information:

Primary network interface:
        eno1: Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection
        enp2s0: Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection

I go to use only one interface thus only one of them is connected now. But which one?
I have Interface 1 and Interface 2 according to marking on server tower. Interface 1 has a cable plugged in, Interface 2 hasn't.
But in fact enp2s0 is correct choice!! How should I have guessed that enp2s0 is Interface 1?

It would be very helpful if there was a link status (or cable status) in front of each network interface. E.g.:

Primary network interface:
        eno1: [unplugged]: Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection
        enp2s0: [plugged]: Intel Corporation 82574L Gigabit Network Connection
