Network Team Problem DL380 G3


we've setup Network Teaming on a few DL380 G3 servers (NC7781). We are using latest drivers/Teaminng utility (7.50,7.35) for OS Windows 2000. We've configured Fault Tolerant/Smart Switch.
Recently one switch failed. Unfortunately it looks like the switching to the secondary adapter didn't work.
Eventlog entry:
type: warning
source: CPQTeamMP
HP Network Team #1: PROBLEM: A non-Primary Network Link is not receiving. Receive-path validation has been enabled for this Team by selecting the Enable receive-path validation Heartbeat Setting. ACTION: Please check your cabling to the link partner. Check the switch port status, including verifying that the switch port is not configured as a Switch-assist Channel. Generate Broadcast traffic on the network to test whether these are being received. Also make sure all teamed NICs are on the same broadcast domain. Run diagnostics to test card. Drop the NIC from the team, determine whether it is receiving broadcast traffic in that configuration.

Could anyone help me what that means? Before we had run tests unplugging one network cable at a time and as far as I know that worked successfully.
