Hello all. I am going a bit crazy over here trying to work out some network issues with Dell. I have a few Dell PowerEdge servers connected to a:
10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet WS-X6148-GE-TX
All servers are running 1.0GB NICs. Some say that I should use auto port settings. Other say manual settings for speed, duplex, and flow control as well as the servers NIC.
Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this? Thanks.
You should match the settings, if the servers are running Auto/Auto, the switchport should have auto/auto as well.
Errors may not be present in the counters but you may experience speed degradation.
