There are two interface cards in the machine. All my ndd queries were
getting the status from instance 1 which is not connected. Just before
ndd queries, I have set the instance to 0. Now, I am getting the proper
status of hme0. Thanks for your help.

Subject: Network performance on E 250.

Hi Gurus,

I have one E250 machine. Machine is connected to a 100 MBPS full duplex
switch port. I am able to connect to the machine from the network. But
the network performance is not appreciable.

Here is the output of my network status commands

ndd -get /dev/hme link_speed
ndd -get /dev/hme link_mode
ndd -get /dev/hme link_status

Its quite embarrassing that I get '0' in network status. Believe me, I
can connect to the machine from the network !!

So I try to force the 100 MBPS full duplex on hme. My /etc/system has
the below entries.

set hme:hme_adv_autoneg_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_100fdx_cap=1
set hme:hme_adv_100hdx_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_10hdx_cap=0
set hme:hme_adv_10fdx_cap=0

Even after forcing the 100MBPS it give me the same status on all the ndd
-get commands as mentioned earlier.

Any help on this would be of great help.
Will summarize.
