We have a Windows 2003 R2 Server running SQL Server 2005 which is the back-end to our main application, which is used by around 100-150 people at a time throughout the day. As I'm in IT I don't personally use the application but I'm told that it runs slowly, especially at peak times.
The server hosting the database has two identical Broadcom NICs, but only one is enabled. I wondered whether I would notice any benefits in terms of speed and performance of the application using the database by enabling the second NIC and teaming them, so that they have the same IP address.
Some of the things I've read online suggest that there would be no discernible benefit other than resiliency. I wondered what your expert opinions were.
