Dual network adapters

both internal Broadcom Bcm5716c net xtreme II driver dated 12/28./2009 version 5.2.17.0

Two questions

1. can both network adapter be setup on same ip network ie 192.168.10.10 and 192.168.10.11

2. When I set the properties of the ip interface on the network adapter I set the ip address default gateway and sub mask plus DNS and Wins entries, so I set the option to manually define the problem is when I go back to check the settings via the properties the properties window show obtain ip address information and al the entries I entered have disappeared.
If I do an ip config /all all the information I setup is there even after a restart.
So why is the network adapter properties not showing I have several other windows 2003 R2 servers they are standard 32bit and they work fine network adpater driver issue?

Any ideas

thanks

Tom

Are you trying to team the 2 adapters for failover or what exactly ?

If teaming, then yo need to use the teaming admin program for your NICs.

Please be specific on what you need .

I hope this helps !

Not really sure never used dual nics before

I was thinking maybe to split the workload since it is going to be an exchange server

Does that help

Unless it is for a very high volume exchange server, Failover is probably ore important than load balancing.

In either case the NIC management program will probably give you options for both.

I would download , and install it and read the  documentation to see what your needs are and how best to resolve them.

From the Dell site under either management or Network drivers/programs or possibly even from the install CDs that came with the machine
