Has your X server got more than one network interface active and plugged into the same subnet/network segment.

what model mac is the Xserve?

Do you see any problems on the network device where the X serve is plugged in?

Yes. The server has 2 network cables plugged in. They are bonded. Its been working fine for over a year now. Switch does not seem like its having any problems.

Are the ports trunked both ends?  Check the port status on the switch and on the server config.

Can you scan the ports for traffic and see what's going on there?

Ive has this problem before and its been a problem at the switch side - has the switch been restarted recently ? if not schedule some time to do so. ARe either of the ports, or the logical (bonded) port showing any errors or corrections ? DO you get the problem with only one of the cables in ? (try both in isolation). Have you tried replacing 1 or both the cables ? (physical degradation does happen).
