Simpler Navigation coming for Servers and Operating Systems
Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

intermittent ping failures



I have a script in one of my servers, that pings lots of servers (around 11) every 5 minutes, and some of them are in C7000 chassis (blade). There is one blade running hpux 11.31, that the ping fails around 20 times in a day, and if I am on it, I press enter at prompt and nothing happens, but after few seconds it responds.

Would this be a hardware failure on the blade, or something else? the other blades on the same chassis do not have this problem.
