Got an Ultra 2 that is moving from FDDI
(Sun FDDI 5.0 adapter) to Fast Ethernet.
Can't get the built in hme to work. No
link light. Called Sun service and after
talking about it over the phone it was
determined that the internal transciever
is probably bad. watch-net-all hangs
on the internal transciever check...
Rather than taking the server down for the
better part of a day to have Sun service
replace the motherboard, we decided to
order a Sun Swift adapter.
The genuises in parts and shipping sent
me a fast ethernet card instead with no
paperwork. Just a box with a card.
It was purchased this week and when I
intalled it the Ultra 2 recognizes it and
assigns the be driver to the card
(leading me to believe they got
a fastethernet 1.0 adapter).
When I plumb it with the be driver it works
fine, except be drivers are half duplex.
We need full-duplex.
The question I have are:
1. Are there any new be drivers that make this
2. I find it hard to believe our supplier would
sell us something as ancient as a fastethernet 1.0
this week. Is there any chance that the Ultra 2 is
not correctly identifying the card?
