BL460 NIC Connection Problem

We are having an issue connecing our BL460 blade to a FastEthernet switch.

We can only connect this server to a gig capable switchport. Any switchport which is not gig capable we get no connection.

Is there any sway round this.

I cant seem to be able to hard code the speed down to 100mbps to get this to work.

Hi,


Since Bl460 Blade server is having gigabit Ethernet port and pass through, it will not negotiate with 100 mb Network ,so it is mandatory to connect with the 1000 mb line
