Slow Server speed on teaming

We are having some problem.We have Dell servers with win2008r2.Teaming configured with these servers.Previously all teamed port were connected to single switch.That  time no issue.But I have shifted one port to another switch for redundancy  .After that all the servers became very slow .Anybody faced this issue.

If You have normal ethernet

If You have normal ethernet switches this will not work if the servers are configured for active/active, because the mac-address of the server will flap between the switches.

If You want to have redundancy, You have to configure the server for active/standby (active/passive), so only one link at the time is active.

If You wont both links to be active You have to connect to something that can handle active/ative links, such as nexus switches or a pair of vss switches or a switchstack.

Hi

Can you confirm which teaming option you have selected within the Dell config?

Were you using a portchannel beforehand?

Thanks
