NIC flipping/unregistering on Solaris 10

User_Y2Y3I

Hi,

From today I started getting strange messages on Solaris-10 x86 (HP Proliant hardware). 

The server seems accessible and mentioned NIC doesn't seem to be in use or plumb. Not sure why it is showing as flipping/unregistering. 

Can somebody advise on this?

This server is at a remote location, so I don't have physical access to it.

From /var/adm/messges -->
