Gateway not pinging + LINUX

HI Friends,

Today, My collegue Kundan helped me in resolving an issue of Network. we have configured th IP of linux server properly.
# service network restart

was alos giving proper output, NO DHCP was eanble. firewall was also off.  the file :-

# cat /etc/sysconfig/network-script/ifcfg-eth0 was also giving proper o/p.

the ONBOOT was YES,
GATEWAY was proper,
IP was there.
but GATEWAY was not responding, when we were pinging it or when we were trying to reach it.

We were remotely supporting, we later thought and Kundan suggested that may be the cable is not plugged in. we checked with the physical team there. They said, yes we have only connected one cable to ILO port only and not network or other cable is connected. so due to this only, the Gateway was not reachable. it s a good learning, i have today.
we should check physically also. later when wire got connected properly. the same server was pinging from outside also and was accessible through putty too.

Friends, please share your experience of Network not reachable in LINUX or HP UX.

Love Sharing
