Intel Server Board S815EBM1

384 MB RAM

Red Hat 7.2

Kernel: 2.4.7, 2.4.10, 2.4.17

Integrated Intel® PRO/100 Network Adapter (Intel® 82562ET controller)

I just sent this server to our NOC and since i put it online, its been failing constently, it can be
online for 1 minute or 12 hours, and fail

I have seen alot of these pop up now (as i type this the server is down)

eepro100: wait_for_cmd_done timeout!
(message repeats XX times..etc)

I am not a linux guru, but i did successfully upgrade to the latest kernel (one of my first
upgrades), is there an known fix for this that i can run? (if it would have to do with modules,
compliling etc, i would appreciate it if you send me instructions on how to do it step-by-step)

Thanks again
