Catalyst 6509 w/ WS-X6316-GE-TX and Cisco CallManager w/ GIG NIC

I have two Catalyst 6509 with the same configurations. In each 6509 I have four WS-X6316-GE-TX blades. I have the CallManagers connected to the 6509s. However, I am unable to receive a DHCP address. Then, I move the CallManagers to a 10/100 3548 switch and I can get DHCP fine. I have other servers connected the same way I am trying to connect the CallManagers and they get DHCP fine. I have even tried different port without success. Any ideas?

Re: Catalyst 6509 w/ WS-X6316-GE-TX and Cisco CallManager w/ GIG

The first and most obvious question is whether you've configured the ports on the 6500s to PortFast etc. If not that explains it.

Re: Catalyst 6509 w/ WS-X6316-GE-TX and Cisco CallManager w/ GIG

I used the set port host / command, which I thought set the port to portfast and removed all channeling and trunking parameters. I have other servers connected in the same fashion as the CallManager and they are working just fine. Also, I have tried moving to another port that worked with another server. The servers that do work are using Intel gigabit NICS. The CallManager server is using the imbedded gigbit NICS and the Compaq teaming drivers. Also, I have set a static IP address and the NICS function fine. I am trying some sniffer traces tomorrow. I was just hoping someone had seen this before and could give a quick solution! :)
