This error usually refers to a wrong MAC address; so there must have been a change of the ethernet device of some kind.
Since you do not give any specific information whatsoever, neither to your server nor to what you have done or were trying to do, there can only be unspecific advice.

These resources explain how such an error is usually dealt with:

ps:

Look for a file name ending in "_persistent_net.rules"
The numbers or character combinations at the beginning of the file name may vary.
