Determining IP information for eth0… failed

Bellow commands can be used to troubleshoot this issue.

# dmesg | grep eth0 (displays information about the Ethernet controller card, mac address etc.)

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network (displays the network settings)

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfp-eth0 (displays the network settings)

# ifconfig eth0 down (to down the nic)

# ifconfig eth0 up (to start the nic)

# netstat -rn (display kernel routing IP table)

# service network restart (restart the network settings)
