Intermitten "No network connection"
Posted on 2010-11-29
Over the past two months I've migrated two NetWare servers 6.5 SP7 to SLES10 SP3 and OES2 SP2. I've had some consulting assistance and been learning linux as I go. Now I have a problem migrating to a Dell PE SC 1430 with integrated Broadcom BCM 5751 GB Ethernet working ok, but then after a reboot it will come up with no networking. I've migrated two volumes 350GB using miggui, so it has been working, but again today, no network. I've used Network Manager to configure a static IP but it willsometimes come up and ifconfig will show no ip assigned. I can manually assigned ip, netmask, gw and can ping the gw, but can't ping any host on the subnet. I disabled the integrated NIC and installed another, but same problem. Could someone direct me to a more in-depth troubleshooting guide for this? I've spent prolly 3 hours and maybe it's staring me in the face, but I'm reaching out for some help, thank you.
