NIC's teamed Cisco port SLA

Hi,
 
   I have two Intel Pro 1000 MT's teamed in Windows2003 on the server end. What do I have to do now on a Cisco 3750 so that the actual pipe to the server is maximized to work with the teamed NIC's? What is this feature called on Cisco switches/routers?

Thanks.

What LACP mode did you use? Try both active and passive since we don't know how the team is acting.

interface 1/0/1
 channel-group 1 mode active

You'll want to use Link Aggregation on the teamed NICs, and use LACP on the switch. (Link Aggregation Control Protocol).

Yes, it's called EtherChannel. They have 2 methods- PAGP and LACP. You'll want to use LACP.

Hi,
   Etherchannel is what is the equiv. for LACP on cisco's. I tried to create a Etherchannel for 2 and 12 but once the channel was created, the status was "link down" for layer 2. Now what? Server setup is fine.

Great. I set it to the "desireable" option which gave me the best performance for page loads rather then lacp - active or passive.
Thanks Mike.
