I have configured 2 Intel nics on a Dell server as a 802.3ad team and I need to configure the switch end too. The ports need to be in VLAN 1028, but I think I have configured this wrong, should it look like this?
interface GigabitEthernet3/0/25 description BACKUPS VLAN 1028 switchport access vlan 1028 flowcontrol receive on channel-protocol lacp channel-group 6 mode active ! interface GigabitEthernet3/0/26 description BACKUPS VLAN 1028 switchport access vlan 1028 flowcontrol receive on channel-protocol lacp channel-group 6 mode active
The port channel is created, then I just add the vlan:
interface Port-channel6 switchport access vlan 1028 flowcontrol receive on
Hello, I've configured it that way now and I can ping the IP of the server now, but I don't get use of the full 2gb bandwidth from both NICs. Maybe it is my testing method, but I'm using iperf and I have SNMP running on the 2 NICs and the virtual team IP that I had to create so I can get almost realtime bandwidth info. When I use iperf it seems to only flat line 1 of the NICs and the other is left idle.
Thats not the way etherchannel works . For any given network conversation between client and the server it will flow down a single port in the channel so the max you will ever get for a single conversation is 1 gig . I
