I just installed a new server into our business. The server is a Dell T310 with Xeon 3430 processor with 16 gb of ram. We are running Windows server 2008 R2. It has dual Broadcom BCM 5716C Nextreme II Gige ethernet cards. I am only using one of them and disabled the 2nd one. Everything is setup on the server and it is running well. I checked the Server Manager today and saw that there were numurous File Service Warnings. I have no other warnings on the server.
All the computers in the business are running windows 7 64 bit. They are all on Static IP address's. I get no one complaining of system outagesor slow down etc.
I will display the latest warning below as they all appear the same.
My First question is, should I enable the second ethernet adapter and Bridge it with the first card? Will that enhance the network speed to the server.
I know that teaming speed up the data but that needs would need a special switch to accept the teaming from what I have worked with in the past.
I am wondering if this is a large issue. Others online say that it could be a driver issue with the ethernet cards.
I appreciate any help with this issue.
Here is the Service warning:
