Broadcom Advanced Control Suite 3 Teaming Troubleshooting

I have an IBM X3650 running Windows Server 2003 SP2 64 bit, with two broadcom cards that are teamed into one "BASP Virtual Adapters"
However, we have problems with this teaming

It keeps dropping and I loose the RDP conection to it and since its a DC it stops responding to logon requests. it waits for about 10- 15 mins and it comes back up.

I have checked My both NICs have same driver. I am using Broadcom Advanced control Suite 3.

Thanks in Advance.

Which mode teaming are you using? Is the switch or are the switches to which this computer is connected managed? I.e. if to a single switch are the ports bound? If connected to separate switches, you may have to use a failover method only and enable the quick/rapid spanning tree convergence.

Make sure you do not fix the speed on the interfaces while the switch ports are auto-negotiate.
If managed switch, check its log for errors on the ports to which this system is connected..

Hi arnold,

Sorry for the late response, i was away for the weekend.

We are using Smart Loading and Failover and yes switch is managed but my other servers are plugged into same swich and there NICs are teams as well.

right now i have deleted the team and just using one Nic to monitor its performance on one nic.

Check the switch port logs for errors CRC, etc.
If you have other available ports, see if switching them will resolve the issue or the issue remains. check cabling they may be the issue.
