Proliant ML350 G5 Server 2003 losing network connectivity

Hi, One of my customers new ML350 G5 with windows 2003 loses network connectivity several times a day. Motherboard is replaced, Windows is reinstalled, still same problem. Reboot helps. The server is used as a terminal server. The server is now at my office and I have tested remotedesktop a few times with no problem but when I opened HP management Homepage I lost connection again. Could it be some HP agent/software causing the problem?

I don't a HP agent can cause that issue

anyway if you are sure that when yu open the System Management homepage the connectivity is lost go to Control Panel -> HP insight Management agents and stop the NIC information agent or any other agent

also what about NIC drivers? what about firmware for NICs?
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: Proliant ML350 G5 Server 2003 losing network connectivity

Hi
I dont really thing the HP Management Homepage had anything to do with it, it just happend to be thing I did at the moment.

When the server loses network, it still has a connection to the switch, but I cannot ping the server or ping from the server. But I can ping servers own IP at the server. Strange.

Firmware 2.1.31.B
PSP 8.15

installed a newer network driver today 4.6.17.0.C

I´ll keep testing during the day
