Noob. Should I use other 3 nics on my Dell R610?
Posted on 2011-10-10
I just setup a Dell R610. It has raid1 for the OS and a 5 drive raid5 for the file server.
It's a DC and DNS server on Windows 2008 AD. There's also another DC server on the LAN. We are a small office of 40 users.
We are using unmanaged switches. I do have a managed switch but I didn't set it up yet.
Currently, the R610 is using one nic out of the four. I was wondering if there are practical benefits to using any of the other nics. If so, do you have steps I can follow? I'm a noob, so please elaborate.
