windows 2003 sp2 & broadcom multifunction NIC network errors

After installing service pack 2 on a new 2003 FTP server I began to get
random FTP errors ( 426 ). The hardware was a HP DL360 G5 server.
FTP would work but fail on average once every 100 times (batch file to
reproduce error quickly).
Updating drivers did not help nor did turning features off in the NIC
properties.
I was able to find a very good site to fix my problem:
http://blogs.technet.com/sbs/archive...p2-on-sbs.aspx

I found that 2 changes to the registry fixed the problem for me:

Disable RSS in the Registry
Use the steps in KB 927695 to disable Receive Side Scaling (RSS) by adding a
DWORD registry key value for
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\EnableRSS
and setting it to 0. A reboot is required to make the value go in to effect.
Set DisableTaskOffload in the Registry
Use the steps in KB 904946 to create a DWORD value for
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\DisableTaskOffload
and set it to 1. A reboot is required to make this value go in to effect.
Not one error yet

Hope this helps….

-Dave
