Hi

Someone asked me to check the following, how can I check? I have the root password.

Server's port speed duplex setting?  This should be set to 100MB FULL..  not "auto."

Thanks

BM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter (23100020) Specific Statistics:
------------------------------------------------
Chip Version: 26
RJ45 Port Link Status : up
Media Speed Selected: Auto negotiation
Media Speed Running: 100 Mbps Full Duplex

to change the settings..

you can use "smitty chgenet" and set the Media speed setting as required..
you can even use a command like...
 chdev  -l 'ent1' -a media_speed='100_Full_Duplex'
