I have several Intel servers with 2 NICS in, only one of which is used. These server are DC and file servers.
- Is it worth teaming the NICs to make use of the one I am not using?
- Do I need 3 spare static IP addresses per server (oner for each NIC and the other for the virtual teamed NIC)?
- Can I choose the IP of the virtual teamed NIC?
- In one of the servers has a 1000 NIC and a 100 NIC, will the teamed NIC take the lowest 100Mb\sec speed?
Lots of questions....thanks for any answers.
