Teaming 2 NICs - make one primary

Hello,
we have HP DL380 and 2 NICs.
One is DHCP and one is Static.
When I team this 2 nics, is there a way to set one as primary?

the reason I ask is that I have software license that is assigned to Primary 1 NIC MAC Address, I want this one to be the primary

thanks

I am not entirely too sure this can be done as the idea behind NIC teaming is:

1. Fault Tolerance (sees both NICS as ONE)

2. Load Balancing (performance increases)

Not sure if this is possible my friend. I looked at some HP docs and didn't see the options there.

Can't team with a mix of DHCP plus static IP addresses since the IP address is assigned to the team, not to individual NICs.

If you are using the HP teaming utility I believe there are settings such as Role and speed you can adjust to make one NIC used over the other
