Yes it will work, but if you set it up worng it will still work, just not as efficiently as it should. You can configure teaming and not tell the switch. The server will use a hash that uses the destination address to determine which port to use. As it rotates through the interfaces the switch will see the mac address moving back and forth between the ports and report a flapping address.

decision. To do this we require the switch to do...

in the network to know of every link and OSPF speaker in the entire
network. From this picture each router independently runs the Shortest
