Hi I have been trying to setup HP Teaming on some Proliant Servers running windows 2008 Server. I used the HP Teaming software to Team 2 onboard 1gbit Cards. It creates the Team with no problems and I then get a 3rd network card apperar connecting at 2 Gb's. Once I have done this most of the newrok runs fine but the servers start to loose packekts to certain types of routers and old PC,s etc. As soon as I disable it the pings come back and does not drop any packects.
I have setup HP Teaming a few times and never really understood exactly how it works. Does it give you a true 2 GB connection or does it just split the traffic over both cards? Also do you not have to Trunk the ports on the switch to get this to work properly.
What Im really trying to get at apart from the issues I have been having is does Teaming the cards speed up the Network for the clients etc. I have rang HP about this and the issues and they were no help whatsover.
