Pinned topic NIC resetting after sys brd replacement

‏2011-09-15T19:55:52Z |
I'm having an issue of the NIC not being recognized as eth0 after a system board is replaced, with the same hdd installed. eth0 is required for our setup, and this breaks dhcp and halting all accessibility for the machine. Hardware is 4800-782. OS is SLES11 (issue occurs before and after SP1).

These systems are remote, and it is cumbersome to walk a non technical end user (or technician) through the commands to manually reset it, not to mention providing the individual a password. I have a shortcut workaround in place, but I want to determine the root cause and fix the issue at the source.

Any thoughts? Please let me know what further information would be necessary to diagnose.

    Hi, Theo.

    Did you ever get an answer on this? IRQ conflicts are the first thing that spring to mind.
