ML350 G4

Hiya,

I need an additional 1Gb NIC for a couple of our ML350 G4's so I can team them.

I see that the onboard card is really a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit adapter so I found this http://www.pcwb.com/catalogue/item/HPAC779

Only thing is the 3rd section of pins (at the back of the card) are smaller than what the PCI port is on the server so i'm not sure if it will be comptabile.

Is this card OK? If not, what one will be?

Thanks

Re: ML350 G4

Hi,

The ML350 G4 Quickspec link below states the following:-

NOTE: NC61XX, NC71XX, NC77XX, or NC1020 network adapter (NIC) can be used for redundancy with the embedded NC7761 NIC. When either the embedded NC7761 or the NC1020 is teamed with other HP Ethernet adapters, Jumbo Frames and LSO features are automatically disabled.

See the "Communications" section
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12009_na/12009_na.HTML#Options

The NC7770 and NC7771 NIC's are single port cards which would be suitable for your teaming needs with the embedded port.

Try Ebay (UK)
