DL585 (gen1) w/NC7170 NICs RHEL5.1 causes PCI hangs ...

O/S RHEL 5.1

I was just handed a DL585 that has three
NC7170 dual NICS (in real life Intel e1000)

When the O/S is loading and configuring
the drivers, and a live network connection
is on one of NC7170 interfaces, the PCI bus
associated with the card show its yellow
fault LED and the server usually hangs or
never configures the interface.

Whats more strange is the server did work

-pete hoping that this is a known issue ...

PS ... if not, have all the logs,versions etc
any one could want

There are some known issues in intalling most multifunction PCI-X cards in 133Mhz slots 1 & 2 of the Dl585 G1 server.

hence, in your case, if the card is installed in the PCI slot 1 & 2, check the issue by moving them to the 100Mhz slots, preferably slots 4 & 5 or 6 & 7.

If possible post cfg2html report to the forum. (script to generate cfg2html reprot is attached to it)
