     Who does the testing of adapters on servers?

     Today our customers are testing the Application + OS + NIC + Server qualify before rolling out in a DC anyway Why additional NICs?

     Most servers come with 2 x GE ports on motherboard. To deploy VMWare customers are adding additional GE ports typically 2-4 by adding GE NICs. These GE interfaces are for: 1 VMotion interface, 1 Management interface, 2-4 Production interfaces

     There are programs like IBM serverproven that show compatibility matrices but no support is offered for 3rd party products on IBM servers.

     http://serverproven.quangoinc.com/intelsp1.htm

     Server administrators are additing additional GE NICs today. Adding 10GE NIC doesn??t create a new process
