NIC Teaming with Linksys SRW2048 48-Port Switch

Morning all,

Anyone know of any limitations with NIC teaming with the Linksys SRW2048 48-Port Switch?

I run two at the moment and am about to buy a dedicated one for my Server Rack - just want to make sure i can Team all my server NIC's without any problems

Thanks

hi!
if you are also configure each 2 ports on the switch to use 802.3ad (ling aggregation) for each pair of teaming nics, then you have only maximum of 8 possible link aggregations.

if you configure teaming only on the servers(switch configuration left unchanged) then you use any number or servers with teaming nics

i don't think there should  be any(based on the manufacturer's documentation).
