SBS 2003 load balancing 2 NIC's
Posted on 2006-07-12
I have seen conflicting opinions on this subject.
We have a Dell PE 2800 with 2 1GB internal Intel NIC's as our SBS. A large
amount of data gets put on the server daily and I am interested in
configuring the 2 NIC's for load balancing and increased bandwidth. Just
would like to hear any input/experiences (good or bad) that you have had.
Especially with a Dell PowerEdge.
Our network hardware consists of all cat6 cable/jacks and Dell PC 2624
A second question.
If I decide to setup the load balancing/teaming should I use the Windows
Network Load Balancing Manager in Administrative Tools or the teaming feature
included with Intel PROSet software?
