Gigabit issues with P4DPE-G2

Discussion in 'Supermicro' started by Joshua Baker-LePain, Jan 14, 2004.

  1. I just moved a server with a P4DPE-G2 motherboard into a new room. It
    had been connected to a HP Procurve 2324 gigabit module before, and
    worked fine. In the new room, it's connected to a Cisco Catalyst gigabit
    switch, and it won't see the link at all. There's no link light no
    matter how much I try. If I plug it into a 100Mb switch (another Procurve),
    the link lights up immediately.

    Any ideas on getting it to talk to the Cisco? I flashed the BIOS to the
    most recent version, and it didn't help.

  2. It turns out this is a somewhat known issue with this (and some other,
    related) board. The onboard NICs won't talk to some switches, are flaky
    with others, and just plain work with still others. It's fixed in the X5DP*
    series of boards.
