There's a bottle neck on our backups, which means several of the servers can only backup at 100Mbps, rather than 1Gbps. To fix it properly I need to take several servers offline.
As a work around I have plugged one Teamed NIC from each server into a 1Gbps switch, which includes the backups server. When I use iPerf to test the throughput I get 1Gbps speeds and 100Mbps with 5 minutes of each other.
I guess this is because it's not always using the NIC which shares the backup switch.
So my question is;
Is there a way to force traffic for a specific server over a specific teamed NIC
