BL460CG1 - one NIC port not working with Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi.

We have a Bl460c G1 that works with Windews server 2003, but not with Windows Server 2008 R2. One NIC port works normaly and the second only randomly. When you ping the second NIC port more than half of ping replays are lost. We updated firmware (Bios, NIC, ILO), we tryed MS network drivers and HP drivers. Results are the same. But when we change physical disks and boot Windows server 2003 both NIC work ok.

Any ideas? Thank you.

Regards, Gregor.

Under Settings/Speed Duplex Settings in NCU the setting is set to Auto if that's what you mean.

FYI, we just installed Windows Server 2008 x64 (NOT R2!) and the symptoms are the same. One port works and one not.
