NIC Teaming

By tptbusines_98 ·
Hello,

I have a PowerEdge 830 Server, running Windows SBS 2003 SP2.

I'd like to know, if I can configure 2 3Com 3C996B-T NICs for failover.

If so, can/will someone point me to the correct documentation.

I look forward to hearing from you,,,



Thank you,

teaming meaning?

by CG IT In reply to NIC Teaming

not at all the best way to go. you will confuse the small business server to no end and the result will be even more unreliability.

If your connection is unreliable, then it's best to look at the reasons why it is and fix that problem, rather than try to tell Windows "if this" [no link], "then that" [use this link].

fail-over for what? your internet connection?

by CG IT In reply to NIC Teaming

if you have an unreliable internet connection and wish to have fail-over to another internet connection and/or dial up connection, then you don't configure fail-over at the server level, you get a router that can handle fail-over. There are many on the market. Symantec Gateway 400 does fail-over and can be configured to do so automatically.
