NIC teaming on HP DL380 with Cisco switch
Posted on 2012-03-14
I'm having some trouble configuring NIC teaming on an HP DL380 G5 with a HP NC364T PCIe Quad Port Gigabit adapter.This server is a Netbackup 7.1 media server (we'll call it server A). The NIC is connected to a Cisco Catalyst 2960G. This switch is used for an isolated network solely used for backups. Teaming on the server side has been setup using the HP network config utility and etherchannel has been setup on the switch. There is another server (we'll call it server B) attached to the same switch that is setup the same way, but for some reason I cannot ping it. When I undo the teaming on server A I am able to ping server B. As soon as I setup the teaming and etherchannel, the connection is lost and I am unable to ping server B. Has anyone had experience with teaming on HP servers and Cisco switches? Thanks!
