HP BL460 G6 network card problem

Hi All,

We install WINDOWS Server 2008 on 2 HP BL460 G6 server after install HP Support Pack network adapters show status: Network cable unplugged.
ILO log does not contain any information about this. Windows event log contain following entry:
Event ID 2 : A network interface has failed. An Ethernet adapter status changed from OK to ERROR.
SYSTEM MANAGEMENT HOMEPAGE both adapters has status ERROR.

Blade-chasis has a GbE2c 2/3 Ethernet Blade Switch.

We try to install latest drivers and firmware on these network cards, but it does not help.

Please help.
Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Max

Hi Max,

Did you verified the configuration of NIC ports in Onboad Administrator?
Are they properly mapped to GbE2c Switch?

If its a new installation then please also check whether the ethernet blade switch in installed in the correct slot.

Hi,

Contact your network team to check the connectivity from the switch.

I encountered this kind of problem.

for me, the solution wasto enable your port, upgrade errdisable flap-values to 10 on the switch.
