Hi Cristian,

I can get that information for you tonight (us pacific) but I will unfortunately not have access to that box until that time as it is not web accessible and I am not physically at the facility at the moment.  When last I looked it was

root at db099:~# ip link show up
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN 
   link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 100
   link/ether 00:30:48:72:21:d6 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
3: eth1: <NO-CARRIER,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state DOWN qlen 1000
   link/ether 00:30:48:72:21:d7 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
