Teaming nic's on Proliant DL 585 G2 and Proliant DL380 G2 using Win2003x32 and x64connects then drops after re-boot. Teaming and nic's show connected but I cant ping the DG or hit the internet on other servers on same subnet. Tried using the onboard nics as well as some intel 7170 PCI nic's, same issue. I have updated to the lated nic drivers and teaming software. We have not had this issue on any of the older 585's or 380's.

I have the same problem and have seen two possible options for resolution...try updating the NIC's firmware and it could be a motherboard problem that needs to be replaced by hp. If either of the options provides the solution, let me know. I'm in the midst of it. (I've tried updating the drivers, swapping network cables, even feeding the NIC a known connection that gives 1Gbps.) http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=407733&prodTypeId=329290&prodSeriesId=407731&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=1005#2995
Make sure you have turned on the USB Boot in the BIOS of the os. Once this is done, select the order you would like for the server to locate boot files. (Hard Drive, USB, CD/DVD, etc.) Once complete, insert the USB and reboot the server.
First of all, Dl380 is an hP product. Secondly your ghost version seems a bit old as ghost 14 is the latest version. Having said that the problem could be at two ends. 1. At the ghost side where your version doesnot contain NIC drivers for PXE boot and HDD drivers for imaging. To fix this you can try manually adding the drivers to the network boot or floppy boot diskette. You can get the drivers from HP website or the PSP CD that came with the server.
Alternatively you can upgrade to RDP instead of GHOST, RDP is Symantec's offering sold by HP for imaging it's servers.
2. There's some problem with your NIC settings or card if you are trying to PXE boot. If you are using a floppy drive/ usb HDD, check from BIOS if it is detected.
