RHEL, system-config-network-tui (will not see devices)

I am running RHEL 6.2

When I bring up system-config-network-tui, I see:

eth0
eth1

However if I do a ifconfig, I see only

eth2
eth3

eth0 will not configuire properly, and ethtool can not see a link.  The device was probably removed.

eth2 and eth3 can be configured using a ifconfig and route add commands, but not through system-config-network-tui, because the tui can not see the eth2 and eth3

How can I get the tui to see eth2 and eth3 ?

(I can configure the eth2 using ifconfig and route add, and then putty in through that ip, so it is there and working, I just cant get the tui to see it

Thanks

If you have adapters that are working and can be activated by the following command

   ifconfig eth2 10.14.51.11 netmask 255.255.0.0

Open in new window


... but the adapter is not seen when you attempt to perform a

   system-config-network-tui

Open in new window


1> Perform an ifconfig, find eth2, and capture the SW addr

2> Execute system-config-network-tui, and click on "New Device" under    
   "Device Configuration", and add an entry for

   eth2

Open in new window


3> This creates the 'ifcfg-eth0' file under the following 2 directories:

   /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiles/default
   /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

Open in new window


4> Go under these 2 files and replace the hardware address with the one derived
   from the ifconfig in an previous step
