After initial configuration of new Dell Equallogic PW M4110e array an attempt was made to upgrade the CMC firmware to Version 4.5. i then had to reconfigure the array for a an entirely new network; now when trying to configure array the following error message appears:

IP address for network interface []: 10.0.1.10
   Netmask [255.255.255.0]:
   Default gateway [10.0.1.1]:

 Initializing interface eth0.  This may take a minute...........
   *** Interface eth0 failed to connect to the network.  Please establish a network link to eth0.
       Please try again.

Please verify the controller you are working on is the active controller and of course that you have a link light. From what I remember the EQL forces you to have a link to config the port.
