Have you looked at the output of 'netstat -i' to see if there are

Right now it seems to be behaving. netstat -i shows no issues and I
have not had the problem recur again once I forced it from auto
negotiation which ended up at 1000tx full duplex to now be 100tx at
full duplex. I don't know if it is related to the problem or not or
is a coincidence that once I did that the problem has not arisen. It
happened about 3 times today before forcing the connection to be 100tx.
If it starts to happen again I will try and log in to the console and
do the netstat -i then...
In the morning I will break out my powerbook and get the switch port
assignments off a chart I have there so I can log in to the switch
and check the port for errors.
I have not swapped ports/cables on the switch this time around but
have had the exact same symptoms on a server with the same HW that
was using different cables and a different switch... I may swap
cables but the machine is downtown and I am not so unless I cannot
make progress I want to avoid going downtown :-)
I may swap the mainboard if it happens again to see if it is HW. I
have one or two spare mainboards of the same sort.
