  • Network Speed of Domain Controller

    Hello

    We have running Windows server 2003 domain controller. I notice the Speed of the network card is at 10Mbps which i thought was funny. So I double click on the network adapter
    AMD PCnet Family Ethernet Adapter
    Property Value
    External PHY Auto Detect
    Full Duplex use adapter setting
    IEEE 802 Tagging Off
    MP Mode Off
    Network Address not present
    TCP/ip Off
    TP Mode ON

    The driver is 01/10/2002 Driver Version 4.38.0.0 I tried update this I have the best driver? The windows server 2003 is running inside VMware Vsphere Client. On Network Porperties Link Status Connected Config Speed 1000MB FUll Duplex . Why is the server still at 10Mpbs. I connect the cable straignht into a hp switch. The port is set to auto

    VMware ?

    install the vmware tools. It's the only way you get 100Mb nics on a vm guest

      You'll get the same speed as your switch can handle.

      To the OP,

      VMware tools should be installed and can be done from the console.

          well, yes, that's true.
          But you can't even get a nic detected as 100Mb without the relevant vmware tools

          it wasn't the speed that gave it away, but the NIC type.. AMDPcnet or whatever it is
