On the server an ETHERTSM.NLM dated 01-27-2003 and an MSM.NLM dated 01-24-2003 are loaded.

This happens after you have applied the latest HP Proliant Support Pack (PSP) 7.70a or 7.80a


A Customer Advisory has been released and posted on the HP website.
The PSP copies older ETHERTSM.NLM and MSM.NLM to SYS:\SYSTEM and C:\NWSERVER\DRIVERS. To use the proper NLMs you have to copy the ETHERTSM.NLM and MSM.NLM from C:\NWSERVER to SYS:\SYSTEM and you have to delete both NLMs from C:\NWSERVER\DRIVERS

Also the PSP is copying LAN drivers (e.g. Q57.LAN) to SYS:\SYSTEM. This LAN driver should only be present in C:\NWSERVER\DRIVERS.
