cannot activate eth1 using ifup or using ifcfg-eth1


I have two ethernet cards installed on redhat (a version that comes with rocks cluster queueing system). It seems that the kernel thinks that both of the ethernet interfaces are configured, but that only the loopback and eth0 are activated.

[akay@cms akay]$ /sbin/service network status
Configured devices:
lo eth0 eth1
Currently active devices:
lo eth0


When I do /sbin/ifup eth1 it does not give me an error, but it does not activate. Also I get this if I try to get the configuration information about eth1

/sbin/ifconfig eth1
eth1: error fetching interface information: Device not found

I've also tried to activate eth1 with redhat's GUI but it was not successful.

My ifcfg files look like the following

[akay@cms network-scripts]$ more ifcfg-eth0
DEVICE=eth0
ONBOOT=yes
BOOTPROTO=none
IPADDR=10.1.1.1
NETMASK=255.0.0.0

TYPE=Ethernet

[akay@cms network-scripts]$ more ifcfg-eth1
DEVICE=eth1
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes

TYPE=Ethernet

Are the modules loaded properly, what is the output from /sbin/lspci -v, and /sbin/lsmod?
good luck.

I only see one ethernet device being displayed in the output of lspci. What is the make / model of the second NIC?

The ethernet card is a 3Com Fast Etherlink XL PCI. I'm not sure what the model is, but it is compatible with the 3c95x.c driver...

Two part answer, since it's a pci card, have you tried changing the slot that it is in?

For pnpdump info look here.

good luck.

Do you know if there is a good way to test if the interface is bad?

You could try swapping pci slots, or, if you have another machine handy/available, try it there.
good luck.
