SIOCGMIIPHY on %s failed: %s', device, strerror(errno)

This error message is displayed when the SIOCGMIIPHY ioctl call fails on an interface. If the value of the Mii attribute is 1 (default value), then the NIC and  MultiNICA agents issue the call on an interface to determine the state (health) of the interface. The SIOCGMIIPHY ioctl call may fail in the following cases:


  • If the specified interface is not running (up)
  • If the specified interface does not support MII queries

Perform one or more of the following steps:

  • Verify that the NIC is running (up).
  • Verify that the NIC supports MII queries. For more information on MII query support, see the vendor documentation. Typically, a virtual NIC (an NIC configured on a virtual machine) does not support MII queries.
