FCX Server Ports - Auto or Not?

We use Dell servers with Intel & Broadcom gigabit NICs.  We've heard some advice to hard-code the duplex or both speed & duplex on the FCX gig ports and make sure the server is set the same.

What do you believe is best practice?  Have you seen any issues or instability with auto negotiation in this scenario?

Thanks for your thoughts!
