2 Gigabit NICS and 1 Ip Address

Hello all

I am configuring a Windows 20087 Standard Server on a Dell Poweredge R510.  I would like to have both nic's share the same IP in fault tolerance i the event I lose a switch or switch port.   Is it possible?   And how can I go about doing it?

Thank you

Highlight both network card in the properties of your network connection. Once highlighlighted, right click them and click bridge connection.

You can then assign a network address to the joinded cards which will then work as a fault tollerance system.
