64bit 66mhz turned off?

Hi,

So, there I was thinking that I had a faulty 5300 card. I then decided to insert my NC71XX single port Gigabit NICs into the 66mhz slots.

Server didn't pick them up. Green lights on the Card slot but no lights on the Switch or rear of either cards.

This has got me thinking, is there some way that these 66mhz slots been turned off on my ML370 server? can they be turned off via a DIP switch? Software?

Seems strange that the six 33mhz slots are all fine and yet the two 66mhz won't feed any power to the cards.

Thanks for looking.

Reinstall hot plug CPQPHP driver, check if you have double entries in the same folder, or try to rename older one and install new one. Reset cable from top HP board (where you see LED) to System Board

Try to force it down, I left message at 5200 threads, see if that help

OK, updated the HOTPLUG driver in Windows. 2003 still not picking up either the NC71XX gigabit copper nics.

Almost seems like these two slots are disabled.

What does the green/red light indicate on the actual PCI slot? it flashes red, then goes green.

Is it a hotpluggable indicator? can remove card/ cannot remove card?

Thanks for your continued help.

Hi Dan!

The order for hot-plug operation:
1) Press button
2) Wait until led-off
3) Replace card
4) Press button

Note that hot-plug operation must be supported on driver side.
