10.20 NIC SUPPORT query

The query is related to B.10.20 E 9000 server.


The current lan setting is as below:


] # ioscan -fnC lan
Class     I  H/W Path  Driver      S/W State H/W Type  Description
lan       0  60/6      lan2        CLAIMED   INTERFACE Built-in LAN
                      /dev/diag/lan0  /dev/ether0     /dev/lan0


 # landiag -s 4
Speed                           = 10000000  ====> Is this half duplex or full duplex ?


Will 10.20 support  100 mbps or 1 gbps NIC card at full duplex ? 


Please provide your inputs. Thanking you in advance.

Use the 'lanadmin' command rather than the 'landiag' command.


For example (from a 10.20 server):


# lanscan
Hardware   Station            Crd Hardware Net-Interface    NM  MAC        HP DLPI Mjr
Path         Address            In# State    NameUnit State  ID   Type       Support Num
8/0/20/0 0x001083031A21 0    UP           lan0      UP     4    ETHER      Yes     75

# lanadmin -x 4
Current Speed                   = 100 Full-Duplex Auto-Negotiation-ON


Note that you have to use the NMID of the card (4 in this case) rather than the "Crd In #" of the card (0 in this case).


And yes, HP-UX 10.20 will support full duplex communication at both 100 Mb and 1000 Mb / 1Gb if the card supports it.
