RIB boards

Has anyone had any trouble installing RIB boards in the Proliant 3000?

Re: RIB boards

What specific board? What slot are you installing it in? Did you disable the onboard video (RIB MUST be the primary video card)?

Re: RIB boards

Yes, I have had some problems.
We have two Proliant 3000 Servers. On one of them, the RIB we installed worked first time without problems.
However, when we try a RIB in the second server, the Network cards in the server fail and we cannot get the server on the network.
Without the RIB, the server is fine.
We have used Slot 1 and SLot 3 for the RIB - same problem on both slots.
In fact, we tried one particular RIB card in this specific server, and it failed as above - we tried that SAME RIB in the second server and it worked fine. We are now trying a second RIB in the original server and having exactly the same issues.
We have updated the Firmware on the server and on the RIB to be more recent than that on the working server.
I am checking what specific type of RIB we have. The RIB is 40 bit SSL if that helps?
Cheers.
