RE: eth0 has different mac address than expected



Michael,

Thanks for your help with this.

/etc/modprobe.conf showed "alias eth0 e100" but lsmod did not show the e100
module loaded. I tried running "modprobe -v e100", but I got an error
message indicating that the e100 module could not be found, even though the
file existed: /lib/modules/2.6.9-5.EL/kernel/drivers/net/e100.ko.

I ran depmod to load dependencies, then modprobe -v e100. The module loaded
and lsmod now shows e100 loaded.

When I restarted networking (service network restart) the eth0 interface
came up.

Thanks again,
Jim

Hi there..

I have encountered this before. I managed to fix it by editing
the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 file, and removing all
lines that have a defined MAC address. ie the lines :

 MACADDR=

or
 HWADDR=

Also check that lsmod shows the device's kernel module loaded ok - check
the /etc/modprobe.conf file for alias eth0 <kernel module>, and see if
that module is loaded ok in lsmod.

Regards,
Michael
