NIC Teaming

Hey Guys --

My company is moving our data center.  I was put in charge of a project to do Nic teaming on all of our physical servers that have more than one nic card.  However, I know nothing about Nic teaming.  Does anyone know of a good starting point for me to understand exactly what Nic teaming is and how to perform this on HP servers?  Thanks.

NIC teaming allows two (or more) NICS to function as one and boost reliability - while NIC teaming does provide some increase in data throughput, this is normally minimal - so if you are looking at teaming to increase network speeds yopu are going to be disappointed - the big advantage is in redundancy. In order to impliment teaming tou need to have NICs and drivers that support teaming.

Thanks...we will be using it more for redundancy, not so much for an increase in data throughput.
