unixware 7 lost network - SCO

Just had a tape drive replaced on our server. No new software. However now we cannot connect to anything on the network and nothing can connect to us. Put the faulty tape drive back and still not connecting. Changed cards, cables, ports etc but still no joy. Any clues anyone? -- Posted via http://dbforums.com...

    Not without more info.

    Does hwconfig see your network card?
    Any error messages in /usr/adm/messages relating to it?
    Does "ifconfig -a" look right? How about "netstat -rn"?

    Are there lights at the card? At the hub or switch?

    What kind of card?

    Any time you open up a system there is the possibility of moving
    some cable that wasn't firmly connected, unseating a card, or worst
    case touching something and discharging static and toasing a part.

    What cables did you change. What ports did you change. What cards
    did you change. Use basic trouble shooting and start
    at the lowest level inside your machine. Can you see 127.0.0.1.
    That says the SW is intalled. Can you ping the machines own IP
    address from inside the machine. If not stop and go no further
    until you find that problem. If you moved PCI cards around perhaps
    the SW is pointing to a new IRQ/Slot. If you can get to your
    local IP then connect only one thing to the machine and see if you
    can get out. IOW - if you have a crossover cable connect that to
    another machine and see if they talk.

    But swapping cards, etc., without determining what the problem is
    in the first place can lead to frustration with the added problem
    of changing so many things you never know what the problem was
    when you finally get it fixed.

    Basic trouble shooting says start at one point and go to each point
    in line and test it - both in and out - and go from there. It's
    not intuitive but it's the only sure fire way to get it done.

    And dont have anyone help you unless you know how their skills are.
    I would trust one person I worked with - and one of use would start
    at the source and the other at the destination and work toward the
    middle. Problems get solved rapidly that way - but you HAVE to
    know the skills of the person helping. If not they may miss
    something and leave you both frustrated.
