Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 799606
linux can not detect the eth2 failure
Last modified: 2012-06-20 12:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:
When one network port eth2's cable is plug-out, the linux can not detect the port state change, it continue think the port is ok, then wanna send the data from the port eth2 plugout!! even other port is ok, linux will not choose other port as the ping package source port!!
(Assume:all the ports are from same network division/segment)
i can use "Ping -I eth3 gateway" ... but that is another case/senario
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc version 4.1.2 20080704 (Red Hat 4.1.2-44)
everytime you try
Steps to Reproduce:
2.ping gateway address
"ping gateway" failed for the reason that all the package is send out by eth2
"ping gateway" successfully for the reason that ping package is from other ports that linux detected except the failure port eth2
eth2 is the first port of certain network segment;
eth0 belong to net1
eth1 belong to net3
eth2,eth3.....eth20 are from the net3
hope the eth number is not the root cause, but the first port of certain network division maybe the the source of the issue!
