  • In Depth NIC Teaming

    Hi there,

    I'm looking for a document which describes how NIC teaming works.
    How does it work with Virtual MAC/IP/NIC? That kind of stuff is what i want to know.

    Why?
    I want to know why it bites with Microsoft NLB.


    Thnx.

      Yups, already did.
      I'm more looking for how the ARP packages looks like.

      For NLB we found this really good article..

          Teaming NIC's is only half the story.

          For Sending data it's great, it will use all available network connection, but receiving is still only done over 1 connection, as the ARP table will only ever list 1 physical port with that MAC address.

          What you need to do is port group\etherchannel the relevant switch ports, this way the NIC's will truly be teamed in both directions.

          Topper.
