Broadcom netXtreme Gigabit Ethernet DOWN. Event ID 4 - Source: b57w2k
Posted on 2006-11-09
My network puked a little today...I checked the events viewer and saw where the "network link is down"...then next event several seconds later states "controller configuref for 100mb full-duplex link. This same sequence of events happens a dozen time or so, then all is well. It seems that either the NIC for the controller is having an problem. In reviewing the events I noticed that this has happened three times over the past 72 hours or so.
Server is an Exchange box, server 2003, Dell 2650 RAID5.
Here's the exact verbage:
Event ID: 4 Source: b57w2k
"Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet. The network link is down. Check to make sure the network cable is properly connected."
"Bradcom Netxtreme Gigabit Ethernet Controller configured for 100mb full-duplex link".
Any comments to the above would be most appreciative, and I thank you in advance.
