Any way to cycle the Ethernet on a 3800 without bringing down the switch? Switch stopped communicating on the network about a month ago, not able to ping or connect with ethernet.

Connect to the switch with the serial port and reset the eth0 adapter... Did you change the speed ? It's better to set the speed of the ethernet port the same as the network switch, but not auto-sense.

Change the speed by ifmodeset eth0 and put it back to the previous value. Be sure to check on the ethernet switch that they have the same value than you on your switch. It's better anyway not to set it to auto negociation.

Check with your network people. They may have the network switch set to not allow auto-negotiation as is the case where I work. The speeds/duplex settings need to match. Following up on what Trudi wrote, you can issue an ifmodeshow eth0 to see what you are currently set at.
