Network problem with proliant DL360 network cards

We have a Proliant DL360 server with dual NICs in a failover configuration on Windows 2003 server. We have a serious ongoing issue where the cards suddenly report that the cables are disconnected (despite the link light steady and the activity light flashing on both NICs). The server requires a reboot to get the network running again.

Found a technote that says this is happening on RHEL 4.0 and firmware upgrade is required. We have upgraded driver and firmware to latest versions. Is this a known problem and if so are there any other steps that need to be taken to eradicate the problem?
