Hi Antonio

Does the machine stop responding to ping for good or does it drop packets for a bit but then the ping continues ?

If the latter it looks like it could be a spanning-tree issue.

What is the status of the remaining port when you reenable the other port ?

Jon,

It?s working now,

I think the problem was in vmware esx 3.

After i had make some alters in some flags in network features, the system is working.

If i remove one of two interfaces and and i re-plug that, the system continues ping.

Thanks Jon.

Antonio,

Curious to know what changes you made in ESX.

We've seen the same problem and not found a satisfactory solution.

Thanks,
