Hi I have a couple of IBM system x 3550 servers. They have onboard broadcom nic's.
I have an issue where they keep dropping packets to a SUN Solaris server. .
Further investigation determined that it seemed that arp poisoning was occuring. I have found some articles that suggest upgrade to the latest version if the nic drivers, delete the nic teaming, which i have done. I have also disabled the 2nd nic. But the problem still exists. I thought I got rid of it over 10 months ago, but has not come back.
the model nic is bcm5708c.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Server is running windows 2003 r2
Here is an article about it
