Is this possible?

By serverstudent ·
Has anyone ever heard of a gigabit card corrupting a Microsoft Exchange datastore in a SAN configuration with 2 Exchange servers in the cluster? The card supposedly went bad on 1 of the 2 servers. Am I being told a lie, or is this possible?

How did it happen?

I can see it happening, but do you have an idea if the data was corrupted in transit or was the OS/NIC combination hosing the DB application?

Is the original poster in line for another DB scrub if/when the other NIC acts up, or do you believe there is a driver fix?

this problem at some point in the future in a fingerpointing exercise. Were there bug notes on the problem? Thanks for any info provided, forewarned is forearmed!
