Our servers were set up with HP Teamed 1gb NICs set to auto failover connected to seperate 4006 switches running WS-C4006 Software, Version NmpSW: 6.2(2). Ater updating the HP driver software the teams set themselves to run at 2gb. We now suffer from data los and drops from the network. Forcing one of the teams back to auto failover at 1gb seems to resolve the issue. Is the problem that the 4006 software cannot support teamed NICs at 2gb over different switches.
It depends on how the Team was setup. There are about 4 different types of teaming, most of which require extra configuration on the switches they are connected to. I suggest you read the HP documentation regarding the type of teaming you were trying to achieve.
In my experience the load-sharing algorithms don't work as expected and by far the least problems had are when using the Team as you originally had with automatic failover.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
