Network Teaming confusion

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Anthony Litterio, Nov 14, 2004.

  1. I have multiple servers with dual NIC's, I was always under the assumption
    that network teaming with Compaq's network teaming driver, that is built
    into their servers, doubled the throughput to and from the server, when I
    set it up for load balancing.

    Anyway, here is what I want, and hopefully someone can clear this up for me.
    I have 4 Windows server, 3 Windows 2003 sevrers, and one Windows 2000
    server, soon to be upgraded to Windows 2003. I want maximum throughput to
    and from these servers. They all have dual NIC's and we are running a Cisco
    3550 switch as our server backbone (Small Firm).

    I was told that I had to setup Teaming and then setup the switch for
    etherchannel, but that disconnected everyone from all servers...

    Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
