cp3003 network interface issues
Closed, DeclinedPublic


I've upgraded cp3003's kernel to 4.9 as part of T162029 but the host unfortunately didn't come back up online properly because of network interface issues. This problem seems to somehow be similar to T148891 although in that case we got a different error message: bnx2x 0000:01:00.0 eth0: NIC Link is Down.

Rebooting the machine into the older 4.4.2-3+wmf8 kernel didn't fix the issue, suggesting that this might well be a hardware problem showing up when the card gets re-initialised.

I've tried a "cold reboot" with racadm serveraction powerdown ; racadm serveraction powerup to no avail.

Note that due to various other changes in the infrastructure since this went offline, we'll need to reinstall the system when (if?) it comes back up online.
