Hi all, we have the option to use LACP from the server to the switch with 2 nics, in my min this would be true load balancing both ways rather tan using the HP default of outboun load balancing. am i right in saying this? I think the server does outgoing from the server, but all traffic ges back to i from the sae port on the switch?

what are peoples thoughts
