My HP Proliant DL320 has network connection problem and I have rebooted the server.

Afterwards, all the network card on Window 2003 is gone. Rescan the hardware but no unidentified network adapters are detected.

Any idea how to add back the adapters to the server ?

If it's not solved by doing a firmware upgrade and maybe updating the drivers for the NICs then the next best solution will be to add another NIC in there, something from Intel probably will be best.

I have gone to BIOS and the summary say that the NIC1 & NIC2 is disable. But I can't find a option to enable it.

Is it caused by h/w problem ? Tks

Concerning the firmware, you can download the latest here, check if you have the latest, same goes for BIOS ...

Another network card could be something like this

It could be a hardware problem yes, of course, to rule out all possible solution you can first try to upgrade the firmware/BIOS if not done already.

If nothing helps, another network card like the Intel mentioned will be the only solution (besides replacing the motherboard, but that seems a tad expensive for this model).

There's a list of supported NICs in the quickspecs - http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12572_na/12572_na.pdf

First, the Nics need to be enabled. Possibly other system level firmware updates would help resolve this problem.

After that, try upgrading the System and Nic drivers.

If that does not help, run the HP System diagnostics.

I would clear down CMOS, it may not fix it but at least there's a chance and it doesn't cost anything.

Power off and unplug, remove lid and switch switch 6 on the system maintenance switch block, power on and wait for it to tell you to shut down and switch the switch back again. If some hidden option has disabled the NICs this would set it back to factory defaults (apart from the disk data which is unchanged).
