I found on HP website the document : "Configuring Microsoft® Windows® Server
2003 on the HP Integrity Server, Enterprise Edition" ( c00090141.pdf ) ...

I installed W2K3 trought lan - MP, and when it's installed, i try to set the
ip address with SAC, i've
the message :"SAC could not set the IP Address."...
"

You need to have the Ethernet adapter plugged into an active hub or
switch. If your site supports DHCP, then you should see a DHCP address
on "Net: 2", otherwise you will see a '169' address on "Net: 2". You
can now use the "I" command on the SAC to set the IP address.

Remember, this IP address is only temporary. You will need to RDP into
the system and permanently set it.

I opened an HP Case for my problem...
Because the network is plugged , we have a DHCP srv., and the driver is
found :

C:\WINDOWS\system32>ipconfig /all

--------------------------------------------------
"Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet" mean W2K3 found the driver, right?

Yes, it does recognize the device. How many LAN connections do you
have? I sometimes find that it helps to temporarily plug in all the LAN
connections to the network when it first comes up as I am occasionally
suprised with the LAN number ordering that Windows does.

Remember Windows should see the core system LAN connections, but will
not 'see' the MP LAN connections.

Not quite. This only means that W2K3 found some sort of device-id and/or
device-class, probably with the PCI vendor/device/subsystem/function IDs.

It also found a INF file that seemed to know about this device-id, and
installed the driver with the information of the INF file.

It's possible that the driver in the Windows 2003 _seem_ to work, from
the viewpoint of the OS, and parts of the device do actually work, and
signal the appropriate messages to the driver, but not necessarily the
whole of the device does work.

I remember something with NT4 server and an Intel Pro100B network card.

Try installing the newest driver for the device. Download it from the
Broadcom site.

But before we are going off in the wrong direction: do the
link-status-leds on the network card and/or the hub/switch indicate a
working link? Maybe you are using crossover cables instead of straight
(computer to switch), or straight instead of crossover (computer to
computer).

This is not a W2k3 newsgroup.

[Followups set to comp.sys.hp.hardware]

No, but then, it is an HP server, so perhaps comp.sys.hp.hardware. If
all else failed, comp.sys.hp.misc.

Still, I would think that until there is a critical mass it would be
"OK" for the odd other OS on HP kit to appear somewhere in the
comp.sys.hp heirarcy. Just one person's opinion of course.

Now, upon seeing the newsgroup headers set to what appear to be the
entirety of the comp.sys.hp hierarchy and thensome... I would remind
the OP (assuming it was the OP) of the following - particularly the
follow-up to and the "appropriate" group bits:

One can specify more than one newsgroup in the Newsgroups: line. The
format would look like this:

Newsgroups: group1,group2,group3

with no spaces in the grouplist. This has several advantages (so long
as it is not abused by posting messages to inappropriate groups). Only
one copy of your message must traverse the Internet, saving network
bandwidth; only one copy of your message must be stored on each news
server on the Internet, saving many MB of space world-wide; you only
have to enter the news posting once, saving you time; people only have
to read/skip your post once, saving them time; all responses in any
group can be seen in all groups, keeping everyone up to date with the
conversation.

Also, you can add a Followup-to: header line which will direct all the
follow-ups to a particular group, making it easier for you to look for
responses.

I hope you find this helpful. If you do, please pass it along to your
peers as you see them needing the same advice.

sincerely,

rick jones

Then silly me I realized that cross posted the reply, sigh... I only did
it after it started getting responses in this group.
