However, if I set an IPADDRESS and related parameters in the ifcfg-eth2 and do "ifup eth2"; the system returns
[root@web1 network-scripts]# ifup eth2
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
Failed to bring up eth2.
(dmesg shows the following output)
[root@web1 network-scripts]# dmesg | grep eth2
eth2: Broadcom NetXtreme II BCM5708 1000Base-T (B2) PCI-X 64-bit 133MHz found at mem d0000000, IRQ 169, node addr 001018393be6
bnx2: eth2: using MSI
ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth2: link is not ready
How can I debug this issue?. Any pointers are appreciated.
