I think one of the NIC modules has never worked however today I swapped them round and neither worked swapping them back made no difference so I am without any network connectivity at all. The lights on the NICs at back of the machine light up and flash when connected (while the blade center is powering up) but after the blade center has booted up and the blades start to boot the lights stop flashing and the OK light is illuminated (Meaning that it has power, has passed the POST and is operational ?) on both modules but there is no conenctivity. (I've tried different switches just to make sure). The config for the broadcomm Ctrl + S allows me in but nothing there says there is an issue or even gives me the option to see one.
When running BIOS based diagnostics I get the following (not sure if it'll help any)
Following error(s) were detected when the system was started.
1762 configuration error has occurred
162 configuration error has occurred
I've also run the IBM diagnostics from windows I'll attach the file(s) if I can.
Windows however will still detect the network cards and install them then give me the limtied or no connectivity warning.
