Stacked 3750s and NIC teaming

Hi everyone,

I'm still quite early in my network learning path so be nice If I say anythign stupid forgive me!

I plan to build improved redundancy in to my LAN by stacking two 3750s and teaming pairs of NICs on my Dell PowerEdge servers, with each cable of the pair going to a different switch.

In my mind this provides redundancy for the NICs and the switches.

Could someone confirm this configuration will work please, and also what type of teaming is supported, as I was planning to have one NIC active and one standby, but can I run this configuration with both NICs in the team as active with load balancing?

If you configure your servers as active/passive, no configuration is needed at the switches and it is fully supported.

If you configure your servers as active/active, you need to configure etherchanneling (LACP), please refer to:
