  • 3 NIC's on 1 SERVER - any problems...?

    Hi

    I have a quick question, I have 3 NIC's on my 2003 server all connecting to the same switch, their ip's are...

    10.0.0.2
    10.0.0.3
    10.0.0.4

    I am getting an error in the event log telling me that a duplicate device name is in use on the network. Is that because of my 3 cards?, should I be doing something to effectively link the cards in to 1 ip address?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    Mr B

    you're correct.

      Thanks - I guess I'll investigate this 'teaming' business then...

      I might be back with more stupid questions later

        OK - read up on teaming, I'm using the following cards

        PCI Intel Pro1000 MT dual
        onboard Intel Pro1000 XT

        When I use the Intel Proset utility (as per the intel instructions) the 'add to team' option is not available

        I know these cards are OK with teaming so what's up?, anyone has any ideas I'd be very grateful
