ML350G5 NIC stucking

Dear all,
i have ML350G5 server, i added another NIC nc32oT, OS:windows server 2003 SP2

i have problem with NIC stucking, it seems connected but there is no respone until i disable then enable the nic.

i tried to update the BIOS, NIC farmware, NIC Driver, but the same problem.

i replaced the nic with new one, but the same problem, and tried another nic model nc110t and the same problem too.

is the problem in the windows OS, or i must replace the motherboard!!!

Regards,
Walid Halabi

Re: ML350G5 NIC stucking

Hello Walid,
Is this on a specific slot or on all available slots ?? & If all the Firmware & drivers are updated, issue may be with the System board.

Please address/call me as "Happy Dude" .. I am no sir.

There is one other thing that you can try before replacing the system board.

Try the same NIC cards on other server & see if this happens there. If it does not get STUCK on the other server... then its the SYSTEM BOARD that needs to be replaced for sure.
