Hard-Code Speed and Duplex Settings for NICs
For a system that will be network attached long term it is best practice to hard code the link speed and duplex setings on the nic(s) in the system to match the switch port settings. This prevents allignment errors, runts, FCS and other errors from occuring on the switch when the system autonegotiates network settings.
