    We have a Netbackup Server that backups up all our servers. The
    servers communicate via various Cisco switches. We are getting poor
    throughput from one HP-UX server. We currently have all switch ports
    set to autonegotiate. I would like to try to force full duplex and
    100MBits speed on the HP-UX server to see if that will improve the
    backup throughput. Would it be o.k. to do this on only the NIC on the
    HP-UX server and the switch port that it is connected to or do I need
    to do this on all servers and all the switch ports that connect to

  2. Just the one machine and switch port is all that is needed. I think
    it'd be next to impossible to negotiate among all my customers hanging
    off all my switch ports to have all the same settings.

    You should be able to see problems on the switch port for duplex
    mismatch errors, like late collisions errors. CRC errors on output. etc.
    without having to switch force it first.
