HP NIC Teaming and Windows NLB


Does anyone know if there are any good documents from HP about properly configuring HP NIC Teaming and Windows Network Load Balancing? I know a member here named Connery has said that it can be done - but you need to enable Multicasting for it to work properly.

The issue we're running in to currently is outside networks not being able to access the cluster IP, but can access dedicated IPs. We've come to the conclusion this is due to the Cisco switches we have not liking multicast addresses mapping to unicast IPs.

End conclusion is we need to add some static ARP entries to the switches.

I have some documentation from Cisco regarding this - but was wondering if there was anything from HP?
