DL 1145 g2 or 385 Network Teaming on WinXP?

Can't get network teaming working under WindowsXP. I is shame, that HP does not support WinXP. On DL 145 G2 it is not cost effective to run Windows 2003, but cost effective to have network teaming/redundancy..

Would appreciate any info,
Thanks!!!

Hello utis,

DL145 -> Integrated Dual Broadcom 10/100/1000 5721 NICs (Wake on LAN and PXE capable)
Does'nt support teaming.If you really want teaming install a HP pci nic,implement teaming and then remove the pci nic.

DL385 -> NC7782 Dual Port PCI-X Gigabit Server Adapter (embedded)
Can implement teaming straight away.

Xp is a client OS and not a server OS.
It does'nt make sense including a Client OS in a enterprise segment.

Not supported means not tested.
Also, most of the HP tools may not work.
You may want to install Xp and try the tools/drivers for Win 2k.

Hello Utis, NONE of the ProLiant servers are supported under WXP, actually none of the drivers or SW are supported on that OS, so as a reccomendation, don't even try it. It will cause you a lot of problems and headakes, try better using a supported OS so that you won't get any problem.
