Re: How to change duplex mode of MP LAN interface

Hi,

I'm assuming your talking about an HP Integrity Server (like the rx2600), if not, please clarify.

For the rx2600, access the MP from the serial port (Ctrl-B, or whatever method).
Once you see the MP menu & prompt, type LC (this gets you into the Lan Configuration part). Proceed from there until you get messages such as:

Current configuration:
MAC Address : 0x00306e22a4b1
Auto Negotiate : Enabled
Full Duplex : Enabled
100BaseT : Enabled
Do you want to modify the LAN hardware configuration? (Y/[N])

Then you can change the mode.

Success,

Kris (aka Qkcl)

Sunil,
Kris is correct.
Change the settings as described, save them
and then repeat the process you followed to get the initial listing.
If this does not work, please list each step of what you are doing.
Regards

Sunil,
any update on this? Is the problem resolved?

Re: How to change duplex mode of MP LAN interface

Hi Peter,
Some one told me that these things will not changed in RP 9000 series servers. These are hard coded.

AutoNegotiate : Enabled
Data Rate : 100 Mb/s
Duplex : Half
Error Count : 2
Last Error : rx CRC error


IS IT RIGHT ?
