Hi Paul,

I seem to remember we had some DL 380's (can't recall if they were plain
vanilla, G2, or G3) that misbehaved until we updated all the firmware
(bios, NIC, etc).

Are the affected servers and the non-affected servers running the same
firmware versions?

Assuming the servers are all the same generation, it sounds like there
really aren't any other variables if you're ghosting with the same image
each time and the hardware is otherwise identical.

Good luck,

Subject: [Veritas-bu] NBU client corrupting HP Network files?

We've got a lot of HP DL380 boxes here, which haven't been a problem,
ofr the most part. One of the Windows guys just brought to my attention
a little bug. He's building machines for a new application that is being
deployed and when he double clicks the icon labelled "HP Network",
either in the system tray or in the control panel, he was getting an
error referrring to "invalid data in XML file". He reimaged the machine,
and it was fine...then installed the NBU client, and got the error
again. =20 Seems to be happening reliably, during hte NBU install. =20
Anyone ever seen something like this? =20 It's happening repeatedly and
reliably on a couple boxes, though we've got dozens in production
without this problem. =20 Paul
