We are using Sun Fire v240, NIC interface Bge01 connected to a Cisco WS-C6513 switch.
Pls see the below network configuration on Bge0 Interface and also the switch configuration.
Server Configuration: On V240 server, Bge0 interface is configured as Full Duplex 100MBPS and Auto Negotiation turned ON
Switch Configuration: On the switch side ports its 100 MBPS Full Duplex Auto Negotiation turned ON
Let's assume if we change the server Bge0 NIC settings by disabling the autonegotation.
We need to understand, what should be an expected outcome of the above change.
will they be a data collisions?
Our understanding was that a hardcoded setting of 100 MBPS FDX prevents the NIC or the switch port from negotiating to any other setting other than
100MBPS FDX. Please let us know if this is incorrect.
Thanks & Regards,
