Symptoms

Unable to connect to the ILOM using NET0 side-band when switch is set to 1000 Mbit/s (1 Gbit/s).

Changes

Some customers chose to use the NET0 port to access the ILOM rather than using the NET-MGT port. We refer to this as using sideband on NET0. The customer will experience slower than expected negotiated transmit rates or in some cases, no connectivity at all if the connected switch is set to 1000 Mbit/s.
