Description Peter Liu 2004-12-14 18:41:29 EST
Description of problem:

I have the following hardware in the server:
1U rack chassis
Supermicro P4SCT+II  (with two 1GB NIC onboard)
1GB memory
Pentium 4 3.0Ghz processor
Intel Pro/1000 MT Quad Port Server Adapter
Maxtor IDE harddrive
OS:  Red Hat Enterprise 3.0 Workstation, update 3
The system locks up when I try to activate 2 of the ports on the Quad 
NIC card in Linux.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: everytime port activation is applied

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 3.0 
2. Start Network Device Control
3. Set Static IP address and activate port
Actual results: On certain ports on the Intel Quad Port network 
Adapter, the activation results in locked system.  The whole system 
freezes, you cannot go to another terminal screen

Expected results: Successful activation of port and be able to ping 
out over the network to other network devices

Additional info: I've installed another type of OS (non-Linux) with 
the same hardware and all the Network ports on the motherboard and 
the Quad card works.

Peter, is this still an issue?

We are not going to resolve this in R3, closing out as wontfix.
