PowerPack 1 Upgrade - Network connection speed problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,


    Just completed the upgrade to PowerPack 1 Beta testing. All appeared to go well until I noticed the network speed had dropped back to 100mbs. Other than that, all appears to be ok.


    Connector software upgrade went okay on client PC with ALL backups in tacked.


    Lights out Add-in was turned OFF after upgrade, but turning it back on caused no problems.


    The only problem so far appears to be the network failing to work at 1Gbs speed.


    Any ideas?

  • Hi everyone,


    Problem has been identified and corrected.


    The problem was the network Gigabiit switch (Netgear). Powered down the server and swapped the cable onto a different port – the network is now working correctly at 1Gbs. It appears that the switch failed to pick-up the server after installing the upgrade, why I don’t know. Powering down the server didn’t really solve anything. Only when the network cable was un-pluged and swapped to a different port on the switch did the problem go away.


    Hope this may help others!
