NIC Teaming Issues LACP NC373i

http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/postQuestion.do???en.wpa.link.hpweb2003.spacer???



Cisco Nexus 7000 Switch
HP DL380 G5 Server NC373i NIC

Teaming two NICS trying to use 8023ad and destination IP address, but LACP keeps failing. If I use auto/auto or SLP the team comes up and the NICS show connected, but traffic does not flow.

I cant even ping the default gateway.

Using the newest NIC Driver and Teaming Software

Any ideas?

Re: NIC Teaming Issues LACP NC373i

To start with, first ensure that the NC373i firmware is update..

And, refer the following document on LACP issue with Nexus 7000:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c02550438

Ensure that the ISO is IOS 12.2.40SE or above.

Visit the following URL for HP NC-Series Broadcom Online Firmware Upgrade Utility for Windows Server 2003/2008:

Re: NIC Teaming Issues LACP NC373i

Thanks for the links and ideas, but we are at the newest firmware and the Nexus is setup properly. I spoke to HP support for several hours and they determined the NC373i cant do LACP and recommended different NICs

I will continue to search for an answer. I have a large number of servers with these NICS and do not want to replace them
