Duplex Issues

I have severe problems with the interface on my serverswitching from full to half duplex. I have run ethtool and edited the eth2-setup file and it still is switching. Any ideas?

Bad cable.
Bad NIC.
Bad port.

Chances are frames are getting messed up somehow and so it’s falling
back to the a lower common denominator… however usually things
should fall clear down to 10Mb/Half.

Just a guess.

Try a different:

NIC
cable
switch

to isolate.
