HP Network Team #1: PROBLEM: A non-Primary Network Link

I 'm getting following error on newly installed blades with NIC teaming configured.

Type: Warning
Source: CPQTeamMP
Event ID: 434
Event Time: 2/6/2006 3:32:22 PM
User: n/a
Computer: abc123
Description:
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.

Can anyone help .this is urgent ? Thanks:

Hello Dmish,

I have the same issue as yours.
Architecture:
- HP DL380G5 + 2 HP NC64T PCIe Quad Port Network cards
- CISCO 3750 stacked

Teaming Configuration:
- NIC Team 1: Slot1/Port1 + Slot2/Port1
Each one: Speed 100/Full (as on switches side)

When I reboot HP server NIC Team 1 is UP but:
- no transmission packet are going out.
- NIC receive packet.

When I disable/renable NIC Team 1, all is ok:
- NIC Team 1 is UP and send/receive packet.

Any idea?

Thanks

Re: HP Network Team #1: PROBLEM: A non-Primary Network Link

I forgot to precise that:
- HP Teaming Network version: 9.70.0.15
- Teaming mode: "802.3ad Dynamic with Fault tolerance"
as on CISCO side the 2 ports are configured in LACP mode.

Thanks for any tracks...

Re: HP Network Team #1: PROBLEM: A non-Primary Network Link

I've had the same problem and I found a possible cause... it's the tcp chimney on some windows...

The TCP Chimney feature is a stateful offload that is enabled to be the default in Windows Server 2003 Scalable networking Pack. TCP Chimney offload enables TCP/IP processing to be offloaded to network adapters that can handle the TCP/IP processing in hardware.

With TCP Chimney feature, some NIC driver cause high NonPaged pool usage.

To disable the TCP Chimney feature on the server use the Netsh.exe tool... run on a line command the following line:

"Netsh int ip set chimney DISABLED"

you can see this article on windows too...

Re: HP Network Team #1: PROBLEM: A non-Primary Network Link

Strange but true. I have this problem now on BL460c G6 server with Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 EE and latest NCU and PSP!
Only NICs (NC532i) firmware is not the latest and i don't install Microsoft SNP Rollup yet (Article ID: 950224).

We update NICs firmware from Smart Update Firmware DVD 9.00. After reboot 3 of 7 servers is in error state.

Same problem here, ML310G6 with latest drivers and firmwares... at boot teaming doesn't work and need to be disabled and re-enabled to work correctly.
I will try to disable chimney on the next programmed maintainance reboot.
