Re: HP Onboard Administrator (fw 4.30): Kernel: Network flooding

Network flood in your network. Mostly broadcast storms. Packets are detected and discard by the OA.

Please check your network enviorment and make smaller subnets / vlans.

Hi

Try to have a seperate vlan for management as recommended by HP.

 

Thankx
