Microsoft NLB cluster question

Hello,

I want to create a Microsoft NLB cluster with to servers connected to the same switch. I've read this document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_configuration_example09186a0080a07203.shtml

This document explains two different solutions to “unicast mode” configuration problems. But It doesn't explain anything about using an etherchannel. Why can not I use an etherchannel with the NLB clusters ports to solve the common NLB MAC address problem?

Many Thanks,

Cesar.

Re: Microsoft NLB cluster question

I think I've found Why I can not use an etherchannel:

"For Windows Load Balancing Service (WLBS) to work correctly, every packet directed to the virtual IP address must reach all the WLBS hosts."
