Finding domain

During a smartstart NT install, after "start search" I'm choosing the Compaq NIC driver, but I'm having trouble joining the domain, or locating a domain controller, if installing a BDC. I've checked all the usual stuff, network settings (wins server, default gatewa
y and ip address and mask) and have even tried using lmhosts for netbios name res with pre cache 16th character entries for domain controllers. I've had the same symptoms with two DL360's. Is there something wrong with the teaming driver? or am I losing it.

Thanks, Russ

Re: Finding domain

The problem you are experiencing is a problem with the driver. I spent 4 hours on the phone with Compaq support. To solve the problem we select one of the NIC's even though the drive said it couldn't be installed because we need to be at sp3 or above. If you need specifics you should contact support

Re: Finding domain

Yes - ragnrr is probably right here. Most likely a driver issue with the NIC.
