Hi All,

I have a very peculiar issue that i'm hoping I can get some help with. I have two HP DL380 G8 servers running Server 2008 R2 with 4 Nics which Im trying to team for maximum throughput.

Nics are set up in the team as per the attached screenshot. The problem is when I try to Team all the nics and add the static IP there is no connectivity though when I drop only one nic [1] HP Ethernet 1Gb 4-port 331FLR Adapter Slot 0 Port 3 from the Team it starts to send and receive traffic. If I try to have any other configuration in the Team that has that nic, no traffic is coming through or sent, without it it works.
The exact same thing is happening on an identical server.

Anyone have any ideas?

you have to configure the switch which is the 4 ports are connected to support the teaming so for example if it's a cisco switch you have to configure port-channel.

Hi Hassan,

Thanks for your help, though I've managed to get the issue resolved with the help of our Network team. They configured the switches to use Switch-assisted Load Balancing with Fault Tolerance (SLB) with Destination IP address as the Transmit Load Balancing Method,

Thanks for the help.

Switch configuration supported SLB. Configured the NIC Team to these team settings and Destination IP address a the TLB method
