Server with 2 nics and NLB
Posted on 2003-11-10
I have a server with 2 nics installed, and using windows 2000 adv server. today we are using only one nick, but the traffic increased. If i change the switch to one with a 1gbps port, i can use a high speed link between server and switch, but i dont have money to spend this month, and the problem is getting worse.
My question is: Can i connect the second nic on the same switch, and then setup windows network load balance to divide the traffic between the 2 nics (same server)? The server is used to serve files and some systems written in Delphi + Paradox.
