DL360 G5 embedded nics question

Are the embedded nics on a DL360 G5 on the same bus, and is this an SPOF. Should I configure an additional nic card for redundancy?

thanks

Re: DL360 G5 embedded nics question

The two On board NICs lie on the same BUS, and SPOF,if bus fails(very rare), else each NIC work independently. Whole mother board needs to be replaced if any one NIC fail.

you can install PCI-x based GB nics, if you do not want to replace the whole system board if one of the on board NICs fail.
