Kindly educate me,
1. Whether this is the right method or best practice to achieve my requirement.
2. what configuration i have to do in switches?
Kindly guid me
Hello R.B. Kumar,
>> Do i have to do any configuration in Switches?
nothing special you can use spanning-tree portfast on the ports that need to be om the same Vlan
the server teaming must be of type active/standby only one NIC must speak at a given time
STP shouldn't play any role here the active NIC is the one used in both directions thanks to MAC address learning function
Hope to help
