I have a ProLiant ML 350 G3 running Netware 6.5.8
It is running a Q57.LAN Driver version 9.72 AUg 24, 2006
When I look on hp.com for the Driver there are just too many to guess from.
How can I tell what NIC is in my server?
Can it be done without taking the Server Down?

The integrated NIC on the ML350G3 is the NC7760.

It's version 7.51 dated 4th February 2004, though!  Your existing driver would appear to later.

HP informed me a few Min ago that this server has a NC7760 and recomended a Q57 Driver dated 12/18/2003.   My Current is Aug, 24, 2006.  Novell Service Pack 8 has a Q57 Driver dated 3/4/2010

My current has No errors, but wanted to speed it up to 1 GB but in INETCFG the options are AUTO, 100F, !00H, 10F, 10H.
Maybe test AUTO ? if no Link move to 100Full ?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Wonder if I should use the Novell SP8 version.

[Note: just got an Email where Attachmate Corp bought Novell Corp for 2.2 Billion. Wow]

My knowledge of Netware stopped at v3.12 but, as a general principle, only experiment with changes that can be backed out.  So long as you have a mechanism to get back to where you are now, then you can try either or both.
