I am setting up Windows Small Business Server 2003 for the first time. The server has a network card (DLink DFE-580TX) with four network adapters. For simplicity whilst setting up the OS I set three of these adapters to Disabled, to avoid the server being configured as a gateway.
That's all working fine. However, is there any value (throughput, fault tolerance, ...) in now configuring the connection between the server and the router to use two or more of these adapters? If so then how do I go about configuring it?
