HP Port teamin and cisco switch

Answered Question
Jun 7th, 2010

Hi,

I am planning to start using port teaming on a HP DL360 G6 server that is connected to a Cisco Catalyst model  2960. Are there any special configuration that I need to make on the Cisco Catalyst in order for the port teaming on the HP server to work?

Regads,

I have this problem too.

That depends upon what kind of teaming you gonna use..

1. Fault tolerance >> No configuration required on switch side, use the same port type access/trunk

2. Transmit Load Balance with FT >> no configuration required on switch side, use the same port type access/trunk

3. Switch assisted FT >> Etherchannel using LACP for bundled ports on switch.
