NIC Teaming

Is it possible to use the NIC teaming feature with the built-in 100mb nic and a NC3123 in an 1850R? Or do I need to install two NC3123's? Thanks.

Re: NIC Teaming

COMPAQ NIC TEAMING

The network controllers must not necessarily be identical. They must, however, use the same NC driver and belong to the same group:

Group-1: Inter Chip set / Network Fault Tolerance and Load Balancing Support

- NC3131 and NC3134
- NC3122
- NC3123
- Netelligent 10/100 TX PCI Inter
- Netelligent 10 TX PCI Intel

Group-2: TLAN Chipset / NFT Support Only

- Netelligent 10/100 TX PCI UTP (embedded nic in ProLiant 1850R!!!)
- Netelligent 10 T PCI
- Netelligent 10 T/2 PCI
- NetFlex-3
- Dual Port Netelligent 10/100 TX PCI

Group-3: AMD Chipset / NFT Support Only
- Netelligent FDDI cards

That means:
In your case it is NOT possible to use the NIC teaming feature with the built-in 100mb nic (= Netelligent 10/100 TX PCI UTP) and a NC3123 in an 1850R!
