Server cannot use 1000-Base and 100-Base NIC at same time
Had a server with built-in NIC for 1000Base and 100Base. However, when plug both into the switch. Only 1 can work. And the 100Base is preferred over the 1000Base. My friend told me could be due to spanning tree at blocking state. How true is this? Is it more appropriate to plug the 2 NIC into different switches?
Re: Server cannot use 1000-Base and 100-Base NIC at same time
I'm pretty certain that teaming / channel aggregation must use comparable NICs or ports (all 10,100, or Gig).
I haven't seen any specific documentation, but I also believe that all NICs must be (should be) from the same vendor - interoperability of one vendor's NIC drivers with a second vendor's NIC drivers is not likely, even though they are performing the same basic function.
