DL380p Gen8 - HP Broadcom 1Gb v15.4.0.17 says nic's are disconnected, must revert to v15.2.0.8

Hello,

 

Tried twice to install the current HP Broadcom 1Gb v15.4.0.17 drivers on a DL380p Gen8 (teaming enabled, latest version) but device managers keeps saying that nics are disconnected when installed with this version.

 

OS: Windows 2008 R2 SP1 (en-us) with all other firm / software updates applied.

Teaming enabled on 2/4 nics.

 

Reverting to v15.2.0.8 instantly (without rebooting) 'connects' the nics fully functional.

 

Did not try other servers so far ..

 

Anyway, for me this is not the first time HP Broadcom nics do not update very well (2003 TS, manually update virtual nic bus etc.)

 

Anyone the same experience?

Regards,

Arian van der Pijl!
