LACP (intel GB VT QuadPort) incombination with PC5548 not working?


I have a poweredge 2950, a poweredge 1950 and a powerconnect 5548.
I want to connect both server to each other through the server with max bandwith possibility`s.
So i created a team on all servers and switches.

The PE1950 has 2 broadcom adapters which perfectly work with lacp and the powerconnect 5548. The traffic is nicely loadbalanced over both adapters.

But the PE2950 with the intel GB VT Quad Port Server Adapter doesnt work.
I created a LAG: IEEE 802.3AD Dynamic Link Aggregation.
But for some reason i never get more speed then one GB. Beside that all traffic incoming traffic is going over 1 adapter and the outgoing over another one.
What am i doing wrong.. (port-group 3 is the problem one)

What OS are your running on the server and what software are you using to team the NIC's?

PO 3 is also missing a mode it needs to be a access or a trunk based on what you are doing with the server.

On PO1 you have "switchport mode general"
On PO2 you have "switchport mode access vlan 124"
On PO3 you don't have anything.
