    Q57.LAN - Strange behavior - SPEED

    Netware 6.5 sp6

    Using HP 380 G4 with Q57.LAN (broadcom) adapter
    Our HP PRocurve is set to AUTO on all Port where the Novell 6.5 Servers are
    connected.
    IF we set the Q57.lan to AUTO we running in big trouble. So we use 100FD
    right Now.
    The Driver Q57.LAN is 9.42 dated may 20 2006

    Anyone a clue on this ?

    Regards

    /Joe

    Re: Q57.LAN - Strange behavior - SPEED

    Hi
    When we change the speed settings to "Auto" on the Novell Server we loose
    connection completly.
    Just cut the connection. So i am wondering if the Core Switch (ProCurve) is
    the problem.
    No Ping nothing,
    With 100MB/FD --- no problems.
    Sounds strange or ??

    Did you use auto on both sides, e.g. the server and the switch?
    Also, when the server is on autho, what does MONITOR.NLM report in the
    LAN/WAN driver statistics? What speed and duplex does it indicate?

    Definitely not. I have several dozen procurves with HP servers running
    without a problem. In AUTO of course.

    I would say try a different cable.

    Q57.LAN - Strange behavior - SPEED

    We have about 2 dozen netware servers running the Broadcom B57/Q57 in HP
    DL380G3 and G4 servers set to autonegotiate without issue. Of course, we
    use cisco 6500 series switches. I am not sure about the pro-curve switching
    gear, never heard of it. You cant hard-code 1000/full. One thing you could
    maybe try is download the latest b57.lan drivers from broadcom and try
    those drivers over the HP q57's. We are using the Q57 without incident,
    however.

    Q57.LAN v9.72 (Aug24, 06) is available from HP in the latest PSP
    package (7.70, I think) for DL380 G4. We are using this with no
    issues but on Cisco switching.

    Best,

    Hi all,

    I'm having a more less similar problem with speed settings in Netware
    6.5 sp5
    environment, so let me explain briefly:

    I'm having HP DL380 G3 and HP DL380 G4 servers connected to big Cisco
    6515 catalyst, all servers have the same drivers and speed settings,
    until
    now they were connected to Ethernet ports having a speed settings
    ---
    LOAD Q57.LAN SLOT=10017 SPEED=100FD FRAME=ETHERNET_II NAME=Q57_1_EII
    ---
    now I have connected them to Gigabit Ethernet port with speed settings
    ---
    LOAD Q57.LAN SLOT=10017 SPEED=AUTO FRAME=ETHERNET_II NAME=Q57_1_EII
    ---
    now the problem is that on all G3 servers I gain Gigabit connection
    but
    on all G4 servers I gain only 100 FD, both use the same broadcom
    network
    adapter tried to change the cable, port but still nothing, so I was
    wondering whether anybody has the same or similar problem or any
    possible solution

    Thanks in advance for any answer

    Generally, for 1Gb speed should be autom at both ends. Since the
    Broadcom cards have been somewhat problematic, I suggest you try the
    verly latest drivers.

    Updated drivers to the latest version:

    HP NC10XX/NC32XX/NC67XX/NC77XX GIGABIT SERVER ADAPTER
    VERSION 10.02 DECEMBER 8, 2006
    COPYRIGHT (C) 2000-2006 BROADCOM CORPORATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

    still the same problem, on both ends Cisco and dl380 g4 speed set to
    Auto but it gets only 100FD, I tried to force 1GB on Cisco switch but
    then I loose connectivity, really weird. I guess I will have to stick
    with
    the same settings until new driver is released from HP/Broadcom.

    If anyone finds a possible solution please let me know.

    cheers and thanks
