Description Mark H Johnson 2001-08-08 19:20:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.6-3.1smp i686)
[yes - its really Roswell, I couldn't select it from the version list]

Description of problem:
Network card failed to use DHCP to set up address due to incorrect status
returned by mii-tool.

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change from manual IP addresses to DHCP on eth0
2. /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S10network restart

	

Actual Results:  Error message indicates "no link", then [FAILED].

Actual output from mii-tool was...
eth0: 10 Mbit, half duplex, no link


Expected Results:  Expected [OK] from start up script, no diagnostic
messages.

Actual output from mii-tool should indicate 100 Mbit, link active, ....

Additional info:

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE="eth0"
BOOTPROTO="dhcp"
ONBOOT="yes"
IPADDR="192.27.48.41"
NETMASK="255.255.255.128"

cat /etc/modules.conf

This is fixed in that the initscripts don't use mii-tool anymore as of 6.11-1;
it is not reliable enough.
