Actually both the machines are identical. I had connected both NIC cards
back to back using a cat6 cross cable. One of the machines is then
connected to a RAID Array.
If I force 1000baseTX on both NIC cards, their connection status shows:
However, if I force 100baseTX on both NIC cards, then their connection
status shows: active
What could be the problem here? The bge0 NIC cards not supporting
1000baseTX settings or am I missing something?
Both machines are running on FreeBSD-6.2.
