Procurve 5308xl Switch - Pause Packets

I have a DS3 connected to a 5308xl switch and I am getting a warning on the DS3 stating the attached equipment (5308xl switch) is not indicating pause control capability. What's happening is the 5308xl switch is talking too fast for the DS3 and the DS3 is telling the 5308xl switch to slow down, but it looks like the 5308xl switch may not have this capability. So in other words I want to know if I can configure the 5308xl switch to accept Pause Packets or to slow down for the DS3.

Have you tried enabling flow control on the port on the 5308xl? (I believe the port needs to be set to auto-negotiate for this to work too)
