Here's the problem we experienced earlier today. It first caught my attention when users were complaining that they couldn't get to the webservers, which resides on the DMZ. So I tried to telnet to the pix box, but couldn't. Then, I went to check the pix out phisically and the network light was not blinking. I consoled in, and find out that ethernet2 (dmz interface) did not showed up when I do a 'sh ip' and 'sh interface'. Issuing a 'reload' did not resolve the problem, had to do a manual reboot then the interface came back up. Is there any known cause to this problem and what would you suggest us to do when the same problem occurs. Thanks for your help!
