We have EAS2050 and 2 interfaces, this is used for test labe and presently we are having issues the connectivity as it times out when we try to ping the box, blow is teh Network interface details, how can we check the if the network interface is fine and can we isolate the issue?

You can get that kind of information with an "ifstat -a"
Once you have that, I would also verify that the ports we're connected to are completely fine, seeing as it shows them connected at 100mb/full - I'd want to definitely verify how things are configured (auto negotiation vs manually configured, should it be gigabit, etc)
I agree with Christoper here. This is a classic case of duplex mismatch. Auto-negotiate in the 100Mb world never really worked right.
Keep in mind as well that once you get it working, ONTAP only accepts 10 pings per second. Anything more than that is considered a denial of service attack and it will stop responding for the rest of that second. This has confused some customers in the past.
