hi i have a problem with a 9.04 server deploy, i have two nics and both are now not visible after the server had been off for a month. the client had turned it off as they were moving and now when we boot up the nics are not seen under an ifconfig command, only the lo is listed.
i will have to check on monday to see wheter a sudo lshw -class network will show the nics as being there from a hardware perspective.
i do know the following:
- working prior to turning it off
- we had inet static for our ifaces file so they were hard coded to the ip's
- restarting the unit did not make a difference
- leds on the nic light up when an ethernet cable is plugged into it and then into a switch
we have not tried doing an ifconfig eth0 or eth1 up command yet, i have to wait for the client to get back onsite so that i can walk him through doing this over the phone.
does anyone have any idea why all of a sudden the nics, they are both intel based gig e ethernet, would just not show up anymore with their respective ip address based on the ifaces file? we did verify that the ifaces file has not changed, so i don't think it is anything with that.
