Large send Offload incompatibility when teaming on DL385G1

Ive tried to team 2 NIC's in a DL385 that we have. Ive disabled all of the offload settings on each adapter.

When I try to team them, it then tells me that there is an incompatibility due to 'large send offload.' Ive turned this setting off on both adapters however. Does it think its still swiched on somewhere ?

ive updated all the drivers/firmware/software using firmware/psp 7.9 and ive updated the Network config utility to 8.8.

Anyone have any ideas ?

Thanks

Andy

Andy,
To disable all offload capabilities supported by a NIC or an offload target, the host stack sets OID_TCP_TASK_OFFLOAD. In the InformationBuffer, the host stack supplies an NDIS_TASK_OFFLOAD_HEADER structure with the OffsetFirstTask member of this structure set to zero.
