Hi all,

 	I have a server in a host service that stopped this morning. After 
a contact with the service support of them, I got the following answer to 
the problem:


Due to a failed switch replacement FreeBSD did not restore the network 
link. This is a farly common issue with FreeBSD.

I restarted the server and it should be back online shortly.

 	It's a P4-3GHz, with the following, probably on-board, ether card:
vr0: <VIA VT6102 Rhine II 10/100BaseTX> port 0xcc00-0xccff mem 
0xfdffe000-0xfdffe0ff irq 23 at device 18.0 on pci0

 	Is this a really known problem? Is there anything I can do to 
avoid reboot?
 	I have some (local) servers with FBSD and never had such problem.
