    Wanted to let you know that this problem seems to be fixed for us.

    We received a preliminary update from Supermicro which contains a new NIC
    firmware 2.5 they recently received from your side with improved Shared LAN
    support (56313.eep, release date 2008-10-01) .

    After flashing this update together with a new BMC card firmware 1.59, the
    problem has finally vanished for us. (For some reason, only updating the
    NIC firmware wasn't possible, so we can't unfortunately nail down which
    update part really fixed the problem.)

    1.5 days of an rmmod/insmod loop and 2.5 days of a complete OS reboot loop
    now have been passed w/o problems. Both tests triggered the problem
    reliably within at most one day before.

    So thanks again for your help!

    With kind regards,
