Bl 20 p g3 dropping off network

Help please.

I have 2 Hp BL 20p g3's that keep dropping off the network.

I have tried the following but no luck.

1. Moving them to another enclourse.
2. Replacing the system boards.
3. re-imaging them using altiris from a known good working blade.

I cant see any thing in the logs at all, I can sit on the ilo using remote console with no issues.

Could it be a NIC daugther board????

What else could I look for.

I look forward to your suggestions.

Does it drops under teaming or standalone port ? Firmware for NIC? Specific port number as it could be mezzanine board, you can swap it between two servers. Switch Firmware? How often it drops? PSP ?

Thank you for your reply.

I will give the firmware upgrade a try today and get back to you.

The fault happens in either team'ed or standalone.
