DL380 G5 NC 373i has problem when set 1000M/full duplex

We have some DL380G5. One of them can't be hard coded for 1000M/full dupex while the switch port is 1000M/full. When it is set, it shows one NIC is working properly at 1Gbps, the other one is showing wire fault/disconnected.
However, if both NICs and switch ports are set auto/auto, they will running at 1Gbps/full.

Also 100M/full is running no problem at all no matter we use auto/auto or hard code 100M/full.

The other DL380G5 with the same hardware/firmware/PSP are fine with 1Gbps/full.

Sounds like a case of:

Patient: Doctor! Doctor! It hurts when I do this!

Doctor: Then don't do that!-)

GbE interfaces really should _never_ be hardcoded. The GbE spec requires autonegotiation. And even five years ago, 100BT interfaces should not have been hardcoded because 100BT autoneg, while optional was rather well fleshed-out.

Attached is some boilerplate about 100BT autoneg.
