I put an INTEL PRO 1000XF network card in an Fujitsu Server running Windows 2003 server SE. It replaced an INTEL PRO 1000 copper adapter.
I never got any connection with this fiber adapter (all LEDs at the cards and switches blinked as usual). So ran the built-in hw-test. Only the loopback-test failed. Does that mean the NIC is damaged?
Thanks a lot for reading
