os: tcpip offloading and windows server 2003...

recently, we had problems with the [t]cpip [o]ffload [e]ngine features on a nic that caused all kinds of bizarre and strange problems. apparently if you have a nic that supports the scalable networking pack, included in windows server 2003 sp2, these features kick in. the guys over at msexchangeteam.com posted this very nice write up on their blog.

if you're planning on upgrading ... this is a must read.

here's a few articles related to this as well:
