How To Fix NIC Link is Down On Centos 6.5 After Upgrade

GIT – Since upgrading a 6.4 with a SuperMicro X8SIE-F/X9SCL board with 82574L NIC to 2.6.32-431.el6.x86_64 and rebooting, I have been having consistent NIC failures where the NIC shuts down permanently until a soft reboot is performed.

Type the following commands to get more info about error

I found the following conversations on the net, exactly the same situation:

A quick step to fix this problem

Step 1. Login as

Step 2. Add pcie_aspm=off kernel parameters to grub config

# cd /boot/grub
# vi grub.conf

Find and add “pcie_aspm=off” at the end of the kernel parameters
