Gigabit upgrade Procurve Advice

I currently have 6 dell and hp netservers and 4 procurve 2524 switches. i want to upgrade the links to the servers to gigabit, and was thinking of installing intel Pro 1000MT cards in the servers, buying a Procurve 2824 switch and 4 ProCurve 100/1000-T Transceiver (J4834A) for the Procurve 2524's. I was then going to connect the 2524 via the 4 dual-personality ports of the 2824. Any comments....i have also been looking at the more expensive Procurve 4140gl

Re: Gigabit upgrade Procurve Advice

it sounds like you have the situation in hand. The only thing I would do is manually fix the speeds of the network cards and the ports on your switches. The only reason why I say this is that I have experienced problems with auto negotiation with different manufacturers.
