Problem: I am running Windows Server 2008 R2 on an HP Proliant DL185 G5 and both onboard Broadcom NICs are showing the yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager. When viewing the Device Status in the Properties, each one says "This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1) The parameter is incorrect. To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver." Has anyone seen this issue or know how to resolve it. I have done some research and cannot find a resolve.
History: Everything was running fine as I had both NICs setup with NIC teaming (Windows called it MAC Bridge, I believe). I was trying to remove the team to test a completely different problem and could only remove the team by removing it from Device Manager (I did not remove the Broadcom adapters just the teaming adapter). After doing so, both Local Area connections disappeared from Network Connections and I noticed the problem in Device Manager. I spent an hour and a half with HP support and we replaced the drivers for both NICs at least three times with three different drivers (removing the adapters from Device Manager each time) and rebooting. I have also tried installing another NIC card and the drivers loaded (like with the Broadcom NIC) but the adapter in Device Manager displays the same problem. When both NICs are plugged into a switch all lights blink and are green but there is no network traffic from server. Note: the teaming adapter is no longer showing in Device Manager either.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
