Poweredge (Win 2003) port teaming problem with Cat 6509s

Hi

One of our server guys has reported a problem with port teaming his Win 2003 Dell servers (running MS Exchange). He has set them up with an active port attached to 6509-A and a standby port attached to 6509-B. The servers have Broadcom NICs. At times the server is completely unavailable - unable to RDP or telnet and users have complained of poor performance.

Does anyone hae any experience - any info gratefully received.

Regards,

Paul

I'm not so sure CSCsj55739 is the issue. I have a few questions:

1) Can you post a text dump of the Broadcom team config (usually available from the teaming GUI).

2) Are both NICs connected to the same VLAN?

3) Is this same VLAN carried between 6509-A and 6509-B?

4) Have you tried removing the team and putting the team address on one physical NIC at a time, to see if simply one NIC or the other has a connection issue?

Hi

First of all i beleive you have configured load balanceing means active /active not active passive.

I beleive you should configure failover means active/Passive.

Secondly i beleive both of the ports have to be on same switch and same VLAN for best results
