Centos 6.5 Network Card Issue

Hi Guys,

I had to move a PCI nic card on my machine to accommodate a video card. Unfortunately the nic no longer works...

When i run ifconfig I get the error:

Bringing up interface eth1:  Error: No suitable device found: no device found for connection 'System eth1'.
                                                           [FAILED]

Please see attached ifcfg-eth1 and the 70-persistent-net.rules files. I've also tried renaming the 70-... file but that made no difference.
ifcfg-eth1
70-persistent-net-rules

When moving the PCI card this would have changed the PCI device ID where the NIC is located. I had an issue where the MAC had changed on a CentOS box that I was using in VMware. Here is a guide I used to fix my problem:

Not the exact situation but may help.

Do you see the card in lspci and ifconfig -a?

Will give the suggestion a try and report back...

ifconfig -a only lists eth0, the loopback , and two other virtual nics.

Yes the card shows in lspci... I tried the suggestion @misbraves but that did not solve the problem even after I re-added the nic card to the rules file in /etc/udev.... here is some more trouble shooting info:

I am starting to wonder if the nic card is faulty...

I see only two network adapters in your output which indicates the card is not connected to mainboard.
Please post output of lspci -nv

I need only devices sections where device class is 02 e.g.
05:00.0 [b]02[/b]80: 14e4:4311 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: ....................
.....................modules: ssb

Actually you need them to be three...

Hi Gheist,

The card was faulty  / driver issue... reseated no change... dropped in a 3com and presto!

Thanks a mil... From looking at the output now I realise that it was the virtual nic that was being displayed and not the second one.

realtek is much faster than 3com and costs about nothing. 3com has defective checksum offload that is slower than 10Mbps...

Wow... will definitely bear that in mind in the future... is there a link to that info?

...On another note even though the nic is working there is no ifcfg-eth* file in the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ folder... and it is labelled as auto configured. is this the new normal in centos 6x and should I need to make it static would I just need to make the file?

Thanks.

It was modern like 15 years ago... It is wiped from documentation for quite some time.
