I have a new NW 6.5 SP7 and ZEN 7 server which is running virtualized under ESXi 3.5. I noticed that workstations are taking longer to image than they did on the physical server so I ran ifconfig from the console and I can see that the NIC is running to 10000000 (10MB, right?).

VMware says the NIC is negotiating at 1GB. Ifconfig also says the vm is using driver CNEAMD.

I'm not sure how to lock the board to 1GB, or even if that will help.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
