Fedora core 10 on VMware ESX server 3.5.0 network interface eth0 issue.

Network interface eth0 was not coming up at boot time irrespective of being configured properly. Chkconfig was also properly configured for network services for run levels 2 3 4 5.

Issue is that... By default i could see ONBOOT flag set to no "ONBOOT=no" in the configuration script /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0

Modifying it to ONBOOT=yes did the trick.

etho network interface came up properly in next boot cycle.

Cheers...
