I have one server with win 2008 r2.On top of the rack there are 2 ,2K switches.one working as active and one as passive.
n/w admin take one cable to one active switch and second cable to passive switch from server.how can i bind the ip address in windows.so that if one switch goes down then trafic automatically shift to the second switch.
I have to use only one ip address on two ports of server.

There should be nic teaming software to be found for the server. That way you can use one ip adress on both nics.
Depending on what hardware you have (for example dell or hp) you should be able to find that on their site.

What brand are the NICs?  Dell & Fujitsu commonly use Broadcom and their Software for Teaming is very easy to configure

First you need to confirm that the switches support NLB type balancing. Then, you can follow the video www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2nq-qEwAzg

i have configured the teaming using dell advance suite bacs3 .now i have created team of two physical nic as primary but one virtual adapter created automatically.
now my question is this ,how can i test that i have did the right thing for teaming the two physical nics as both physical nics are showing no ip but one ip is showing only on virtual adapter.
second how would i configure the same scenario of teaming on hyper-v servers  and ESXI which have 5 vms each..

That's the way it works :) The IP is on the virtual NIC and not on the physical NICs. The easiest way to test would be to unplug one of the physical NICs and see if things still work. Then, plug it back and unplug the other one and see if it still holds.
