How can I test for the ether driver being initialized?
On startup, I’m running:
If I immediately start pinging another machine, I notice that it can take up to 30sec before a ping will go through. However, another machine (with a different ether card) will initialize in about 2sec.
I thought about pinging another machine, and waiting for the ping to return, but I can’t guarantee that the other machine will be up when I reboot this machine.
I could just add a “sleep 45”, but I don’t want to wait if I don’t have to. I have about 400 machines that I’m responsible for, and they have different ether cards (some using other chipsets than 21x4x).
