There is another similar server, and ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1 are similar(ofcourse different IP etc).
The other server is working fine.

difference is

Code:
on WORKING server

# route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
IP ADDRESS HERE *               255.255.255.0   U     1      0        0 eth1
19.16.12.1      *               255.255.255.0   U     1      0        0 eth0
default         GATEWAY HERE    0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 eth1


on NON-WORKING server
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface
IP ADDRESS HERE  *               255.255.255.0   U     1      0        0 eth1
19.16.12.0      *               255.255.255.0   U     1      0        0 eth0
link-local      *               255.255.0.0   U     1002      0        0 eth0
link-local      *               255.255.0.0   U     1003      0        0 eth1
default         GATEWAY HERE    0.0.0.0         UG    0      0        0 eth1
and WORKING server is able to resolve IP but NON-WORKING server is not able resolve IP and ending up with an error when it try to use nslookup command to resolve some other server
Code:
;; connection timed out; no server could be reached
Code:
on WORKING server
# more /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver <DNS IP HERE>

on NON-WORKING server
# more /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver 127.0.0.1
nameserver <SAME DNS IP HERE AS ABOVE FOR WORKING SERVER>
