HP G5 DL380 Network Drivers

I have just reinstalled Windows 2003 R2 onto our G5 server, but there's one 'Unknown Device' and two NICS that aren't recognised in Device Manager.

I've tried every NIC driver on the HP website to no avail... does anyone know where to find drivers or a resolution to his?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No thanks.
How about using the device manager, right click on the devices and select properties.
Then select the "Details" tab
Use Ctrl+c to copy the device instance ID strings.
Then paste them (Ctrl+v) in your reply.

Ok then tell us the Device Instance Id

1) Select the unknown device and right click to access Properties.
2) In the Properties window click on Details tab and select Device Instance Id from the drop down.
3) An alphanumeric string like this PCI\VEN_1217&DEV_7130&SUBSYS_012F1025&REV_01\4&6B16D5B&0&33F0 is the identification marker for the device. I only need the Vendor ID number (prefixed with VEN) and the Device ID number (prefixed with DEV). In this example, Vendor ID is 1217 and Device ID is 7130.

Rather than install individual drivers I suggest you install the latest Proliant Support Pack, that has all the required drivers and also things like the HP NIC teaming software, Array Config Utility, Systems Management Homepage etc.
