We currently have several HP servers, each with either 2 or 4 NICs combined to form a team.

However, at the switch end there is no Link Aggregation setup on the ports.

Whilst this obviously works, my understanding is that we won't be getting the maximum throughput TO the server, only FROM it - is this correct?

And if so, are there any other settings that should be set to maximise data flow through a NIC Team / Link Aggregation setup?
