NIC teaming on DL380 G5, Win2003 Std Ed x64

I am having some issues getting the integrated Broadcom NICs to function while teamed. Prior to enabling teaming, both NICs function correctly (either with DHCP or static IP addresses). After running the HP Networking utility (v8.80.1.0), the virtual team adapter is created, but not functioning. Windows shows the individual NICs as enabled and connected, but they do not send or receive any packets. Windows shows the team adapter as "not connected" (either with DHCP or static IP address).

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi,

Either drom the team properties-> Advanced options disable TOE and RSS

or

1. disable the team
2. Update to the latest NC373i, multifunction network adapters driver
3. update to NCU 9.0
4. recreate the team and try
5. If the problems are still there you can disable TCP Offload Engine and receive side scaling again...

Regards,
Pac

hi Tom

MS already released a hot to disable TOE/RSS/ and so on

An update to turn off default SNP features is available for Windows Server 2003-based and Small Business Server 2003-based computers

also which drivers are you using? which version because if you are using old drivers and as Pac told you install a latest NCU it is much better if you update drivers as well

The problem was solved by upgrading the NIC drivers to v4.1.3 and the HP Networking Utility to v9.0.

Thanks for all of your help.
