Redhat linux ES 5 Nic speed problem

By default i have ethtool installed.
when i run the command ethtool

Settings for eth0:
Current message level: 0x00000007 (7)
Link detected: yes
but its not showing duplex speed why??
i need to set 1000 duplex speed on interface eth0.
i have add the entry in the ifcfg-eth0 file
ETHTOOL_OPTS="speed 100 duplex full autoneg off"

but still i am not able to see the speed of NIC eth0.
eth0 is build-in DL380 G5.

Can any one help me????

Shalom,

see mii-tool

I would surmise if the ETHTOOL_OPTS you have defined fail to work, you have a problem on the switch, with hard coded configuration at a speed other than 1000 BaseT full duplex.

Have the switch checked.

If it is showing autonegotiataion on , it wil automatically change according to your switch speed.

If everything is OK at the hardware level, you could try and hardcode the speed and duplex for that card: -

# vi /etc/sysconfig/networking-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
ETHTOOL_OPTS="speed 100 duplex full autoneg off"

# service network restart
# ethtool eth0
OR
# mii-tool eth0

Re: Redhat linux ES 5 Nic speed problem

i want to check on my os side the speed on linux machine lan interface.
the ethtool only show me
link connected nothing else.

As in other version of linux they show all the duplex speed but in redhat linux 5 which command should i use to check duplex speed.

mii-tool is necessary to install?
Can we check without installing it?

Any help????
