The Broadcom NetXtreme II 57XX driver used to suffer from a bug which sometimes caused an ARP flood when 2 servers, both with teamed NIC pairs, configured for SLB with failover, were connected to the same network. According to the the driver's change record, this was fixed at version 22.214.171.124. I have an installed system in just this configuration using driver version 126.96.36.199, and it is displaying the reported symptoms of this bug. The system is not accessible to me, so I need to emulate it to reproduce the problem before proving the current driver fixes it, but I only have one server of the same type, so will have to emulate the other with a Dell desktop (T3500) running Windows 7, and fitted with a dual port Broadcom NetXtreme II 5709 NIC.
I need to load both machines with the same driver version as is installed on site, so my question is: where can I obtain a copy of the Broadcom NetXtreme II 57XX driver version 188.8.131.52 (2/9/2010), suitable for both MS Server 2008 R2 Foundation SP1, and Windows 7 Pro SP1?
Broadcom no longer provides drivers and documentation for NetXtreme II. They can be obtained from QLogic.
Thanks for the quick response, but it's not much help I'm sorry to say. It was QLogic that suggested I try Dell since they don't archive any drivers that old (a mere 4 years).
