CUCMBE - MCS7816

Hi all,

From the data sheet, the MCS7816 has dual-port Gigabit Ethernet controller embedded. So I am wondering, can both Gigabit Ethernet port be used (to do a Network Teaming) for redundancy purpose.

Thanks.

Hi Boon,

NIC Teaming Support

Server platforms with dual Ethernet network interface cards (NICs) can support NIC teaming for network fault tolerance with Cisco Unified Communications Manager. Cisco began support of NIC teaming on HP servers in the 5.0(1) release and began support on IBM servers in the 6.1(2) release. This feature allows a server to be connected to the Ethernet via two NICs and, hence, two cables. NIC teaming prevents network downtime by transferring the workload from the failed port to the working port. NIC teaming cannot be used for load balancing or increasing the interface speed.

Hope this helps!

Re: CUCMBE - MCS7816

Referring on this link:

http://supportwiki.cisco.com/ViewWiki/index.php/Information_about_NIC_teaming_support_for_Cisco_CallManager_5.1_on_IBM_MCS_servers

CallManager 5.x only support NIC teaming on HP MCS Server. Would like to know if NIC teaming now supported on IBM MCS Server for CallManager 7 and CallMnager Business Edition?

Thanks and best regards.

Re: CUCMBE - MCS7816

Hi Rob,

Thanks for the information. I saw this on CallManager 7 SRND as well.

Meaning to say, I am now able to configure the NIC teaming on HP/IBM MCS Server using the following command:

"set network failover enable"

Thanks.
