Linux, network adapters

I thought I needed to replace an adapter, but it turned
out that I did not

I performed the following:

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

mv ifcfg-eth3 OLD-ifcfg-eth3

Open in new window


Then I found out I did not need to change my adapter,
so I performed:

mv OLD-ifcfg-eth3 ifcfg-eth3

cat ifcfg-eth3
# Please read /usr/share/doc/initscripts-*/sysconfig.txt
# for the documentation of these parameters.
GATEWAY=10.14.0.1
DEVICE=eth3
BOOTPROTO=none
ONBOOT=yes
NETMASK=255.255.240.0
TYPE=Ethernet
HWADDR=00:0c:29:ff:0f:c9
IPADDR=10.14.1.17
IPV6INIT=no
ONBOOT=no
USERCTL=no

Open in new window


At this point I can get the adapter to work by issuing

   ifup eth3

Open in new window


However, I can not get it to work by

service network restart
Shutting down interface eth3:
Shutting down loopback interface       [OK]
Bringing up loopback interface         [OK]

Open in new window


I keep running into this issue.  The ONBOOT line appears fine.

Is there another file that needs ifcfg-eth3 defined in it for this to work upon restart

How can I resolve this ?

Thanks
