Hello, I have a Server with the following configuration
Tyan S2882-D motherboard
(2) AMD Opteron 265 Italy processors
Windows 2003 Standard 64-Bit
Intel Pro/1000 F Server Adapter
I can not get the Intel Adapter to talk to my network. I am using the driver from Intel's site. It is the 64-bit driver, Windows will not let me use the 32-bit version. The device manager says that it is working properly. I see link lights on the switch and the adapter. However, it can not pull an IP through DHCP or talk to my network if I give it a static IP.
I have switched the cable with one that was on a differant server. The other server worked after the cable swap, this one still did not. That factors out the cable.
I have swapped the ports that the server's plugged into on the switch. The other server worked after the port swap, this one still did not. That factors out the switch.
