    RHEL Server - 5 - Error :Bringing up interface eth0: e100 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization. [FAILED]

    user13681259

      Operating System : Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 5.5

       

      We have been facing a weird problem lately. one of our linux machines - RHEL server 5- which was doing fine til yesterday-being able to ping, connect and internet- suddenly does not recognize any ethernet card, after one shutdown (office power shutdown). no ping is possible. i checked my network - configurn files; everything seems properly configured. whenever i try

      # service network restart

      the following error comes up:

      Bringing up interface eth0: e100 device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization. [FAILED]

       

      i tried ifup eth0, but the same message again appears.

       

      System -> Administration -> Network

      Inactive - eth0

      Inactive - eth1

       

      Any help will be highly appreciated.

       

      Thanks
