We have a couple Xserves that are connected to our Foundry 10/100Base-T switch via the standard 10/100/1000Base-T ethernet ports that come with the Xserve.
Our switch has 8 GB ethernet ports but they're not copper, they're fiber. Since we're currently hosting about 50 user's home directories on the Xserve and providing network login functionality, it would be nice to eliminate the bottleneck between the switch and the Xserve by connecting them with GB ethernet.
To do this, I need a fiber PCI GB ethernet card in the Xserve. Has anyone set up an Xserve with a fiber GB ethernet card? Can anyone recommend a brand that has drivers for MacOS X?
Thanks in advance.
