Looking to confirm if my configuration is correct.
HP Proliant server with 2 (1 Gb) NIC's using HP Teaming software. The NIC Team is configured as type: Switch-assisted Load Balancing w/ Fault Tolerance (SLB). The Team Utilization tab displays the maximum RX and TX speeds of 2 Gb. So this looks good to me (so far).
On my core 6509 I created a etherchannel group and added the 2 ports to the group. When I display the etherchannel groups [show ether details] the protocol is not displayed, basically it shows a dash (-). When I display the protocol for the group [show ether 3 pro], it displays the dash (-) then (Mode ON).
I have two other etherchannel groups for my EMC SAN that use LACP. Just wondering if this is setup correctly or if I need to be using LACP for the the NIC teaming as well.
