Eth interfaces UP but NOT RUNNING

Hi people,

I have a solaris OS system. I configured its interfaces. They are UP but not in RUNNING status except loopback interface. I made the interfaces DOWN and UP again. The other side of the interfaces (switch ports) are UP. Does anyone have any idea? What may cause this problem, How can I solve it? What else I can check and do?
root@osssvr-standby1 # ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
        inet netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=9040803<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,DEPRECATED,IPv4,NOFAILOVER> mtu 1500 index 2
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
        ether 0:21:28:56:ee:1c
bge0:1: flags=1000803<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
nxge0: flags=9040803<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST,DEPRECATED,IPv4,NOFAILOVER> mtu 1500 index 3
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
        ether 0:21:28:89:19:90
nxge3: flags=1000842<BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 4
        inet netmask 0
        ether 0:21:28:89:19:93

By the way this server wasn't working, it is freshly configured.
