OK, thank you for that. I think I'll check the version of the board in
my Blade 2000 and if it is newer, I might decide not to replace the
board for a working, but older one, and put up with the non-functional
Ethernet port. I do not wish to swap one problem for another.
I have a SF 280R which suffered the same fate as your Blade 2000. There
was a thunderstorm, maybe five years ago, which took out my cable modem,
a couple of ethernet switches, and the ethernet port in the SF 280R.
Fortunately for me, the ethernet port in the RSC card survived, and the
machine had a gigabit ethernet card installed but not connected. I
reconfigured it to use the gigabit card and it has worked ever since.
I'd recommend that you do the same with your Blade 2000. Save yourself a
pile of work, and keep the Blade 1000 as a fully working spare machine.
