NIC Speed

We need to connect HP BL 465 G6 with a Cisco Switch 2950 which supports only 10/100 speed. We have installed windows 2008 R2 on this server. Driver properties we have only options to choose Auto or 1 Gb full or Auto with 1 GB fall back and hardware default. We tried putting the NIC as Auto and Hardware default but still the NIC shows disconnected. On the Switch side we have only auto and 10MB or 100 MB setiings. How can we set NIC speed on the server to 100 MB instead of auto?

Re: NIC Speed

The blade NICs should operate at 1GB by design.
Why don't you just use a better switch? The network will be much more effective...

Re: NIC Speed

You can't connect a blade directly to a external switch. Blade is connected in ethernet interconnect on the blade enclosure (you never said what that is). That interconnect can be connected to your Cisco with 10/100.

But do not change NIC speeds on blade side.

Re: NIC Speed

What sort of interconnect module do you have in the blade chassis?

It might be time to consider an upgrade of your external switch... http://www.hp.com/go/networking would be one place to start.
