Hi all

I've very big problem with my nfsd server.

I'm running FreeBSD-stable and sometime (one time/week) i've this kind of
message on the console :

        bge0 watchdog timeout problems
        fxp1 watchdog timeout problems

and all my network card is down. Nothing can make the network card work
again (only reboot working).

There are only one service I need on this server and it'is nfsd (and rpc.* etc...)

It's dual-pro ML350G4 proliant.

What kind problem is it ? Software problem ? Hardward problem ?

What kind of solution you think ? 

Do yo think if I go to no-SMP kernel the problem can be ... bypass ?
