Description of problem:
After installation eth2 (Intel EtherExpress/1000 gigabit) will work. A few days
later we reboot and the eth2 fails. But when we set eth0 to some IP eth2 will
comeback without failing. However there is no communication through eth2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.AFter installation of Redhat linux 7.3.
2.Terminals comes up working properly.
4.eth2 has failed and will not work.
Actual Results: eth2 SIOCGIFFLAGS failed
Do ifconfig all that is seen is loopback IP.
Expected Results: eth2 [ok]
Should be able to communicate through eth2 (gigabit).
We add eth0 with a new IP address. edit /etc/hosts file to include loopback,
and eth2 IP address. We reboot system. System comes back with no failures but
communication throught eth2 will not work.
Do you get any error messages in your system logs?
What do /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-* look like?
ifup: SIOCGIFFLAGS: No such device
ifup: Failed to bring up eth2
network: Bringing up interface eth2: failed
Can you reproduce with the latest e1000 driver, either from 7.3 errata kernel,
8.0 or kernel.org's latest stock kernel?
Are you sure module has been loaded ?
What gives you an lsmod ?
