I was connected to RHEL 5.6 through a 10GB card that was working properly

I reboot and disabled hyperthreading.

Upon reboot the 10GB card was not coming up

From the Java console I performed the following:

network service restart
......
Bringing up interface eth0:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
Failed to bring up eth0
                                           [FAILED]

ipconfig eth0 up
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable

ethtool eth0

Assuming you disabled for low latency and that the correct device is eth0. Did you boot using the same kernel?

Please check your modprode.conf file to verify the correct kernel module is loaded.

Try:
ethtool -i eth0 (look for module)
modinfo (module from above)
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
ethtool -t eth0

You can also use mii-tool to test if ethtool is not installed.

Alternatively:
1. Reboot and enable hyperthreading to validate the change as the causative agent.
2. Once the system is online as root do lsmod and exec the above to isolate modules, interfaces, devices.

Addition/correction:

Use insmod to load the module if it's missing. The find or locate commands can help you locate the full path to the module.

How to Create Failover DNS Record Sets in Route 53

Route 53 has the ability to easily configure DNS record sets specifically for failover scenarios. These failover record sets can be configured to failover to full-blown deployments in other regions or to a static HTML page that informs your customers of the issue.

I brought the eth0 down and used ifup to bring it up again, but it still said

SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable

I performed the ethtool -t test, Can I assume from this that the eth0 NIC is working properly, and that there is another problem ?

ethtool -t eth0
The test result is PASS
The text extra info:
register_test (offline)  0
memory_test (offline)    0
loopback_test (offline)  0
mvram_test (online)      0
interrupt_test (online)  0
link_test (online)       0
idle check (online)      0

I have never used the lsmod oommand before, I can not find
a module that would correspond to eth0:

lsmod | grep eth
cdc_ether        39480  0
usbnet           51145  1 cdc_ether

Open in new window


Could you please give me some advice on this ?

If you re-enable hyperthreading does it come back?
