In case it helps anyone using Dell R410 / 610 / 710 etc. servers: I have had
machines lose their eth connections periodically (CentOS 5.4 bnx2 driver).
Seems like a bug with the Broadcom NIC drivers. [luckily read of it on a
Dell mailing list]

Bug Reports:


Not sure yet if this is exactly my issue but I'm giving it a shot now.
Thought I'd post since, anecdotally I've seen many people use these servers
on the list.
