Bringing up interface eth0: 8139too device eth0 does not...

Hi,

I have a DL385-G4 with 2 dual-port NICs. Of late, I've noticed (during a recent OS reinstall), that I get the following error:

Bringing up interface eth0: 8139too device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization.
[FAILED]

when network-services are restarted. Is this an indicator of some hardware problem with the NIC ? Surprisingly, the 2nd port of the sane dual-port NIC, is working fine, i.e. is claimed by kernel, identified as valid ethernet interface, IP is assigned etc.

thanks for any answers or pointers.

regards,
BD
