Installing Extra NIC in ML350 Tower

Hello,

I am trying to add an additional NIC to my server. It is the 3COM 3C996B-T card. I have gone over the specs of it and it is compatible with the PCI-X of the server. However when I install it, the system Halts with an "UNSUPPORTED PCI CARD" message.

I have tried disabling the second Ultra SCSI channel and the Hyper Threading but to no avail.

BIOS on this system is D17 (12/2/2004)

Any ideas?

In which slot has you installed the card? Try in slot 5! Do you have any error numbers? When halts the system? What is the last information?

I tried in ALL slots. Same error. However, i found on 3COM's site that this card is NOT supported in any Prolian servers.

Doesn't say why, but I guess they have their reasons. Wish I knew that before purchasing this card....
