DL380G4 + NW6.5 runs like a dog with 3 legs!!!

Hi all

Just bought 4 DL380G4s and set up my first Netware 6.5 server (from scratch with Overlay SP3)but DS runs veeerrrrrrryyyyy sllllooooowww! In fact it is unusable.

I have run all the server diags, netware diags and even had a totally bemused HP engineer on site for 2 days and still got no-where. He even took the box back to the lab for testing and couldn't find the answer.

I have found some stuff on the Netware forum re: the Q57 network drivers doing this but I have tried replacing them with B57 drivers (as well) but still to no avail.

If anyone else has had a similar problem or can think of anything to try I would be very grateful.

PS - I have just ordered a DL580G2 and will be swapping the drives to that for further testing next week. If I find the answer before anyone posts it I will let you all know.
