DL380 G6 network issue

Hi,

 

I have a DL380 G6 running SBS2008 SP2 - it will not connect to our HP ProCurve 1400-24G (unmanaged) switch at 1 gigabit - always at 100Mb.

 

I have set the Speed/Duplex setting to Auto/Auto and it connects at 100Mb, setting it to 1Gb Full Auto makes the adapter think it has been unplugged/disabled. I have other pc's attached to the switch and where capable, they connect at 1Gb.

 

The server is fully up to date drivers and firmware-wise for the NIC - 5.2.14.0 is the driver version and firmware is version 2.1.5.7.

 

I have tried one of the other nic ports (we only use one out of the four installed nic's, no teaming setup) and tried other cables, still it will only connect at 100Mb.

 

Any ideas/suggestions??

 

Steve

Re: DL380 G6 network issue

Hi there,

 

Could you try resetting the network card? or connecting directly to the switch using a cross cable? preferrably cat5e or cat6? or try loopback and see if 1GB?
