Teaming on DL360

HI
I have a few DL 360's. The Teaming seems to be corrupt.

I think the way it is supposed to be that when TEAM is created the team should burn the MAC address of the Primary NIC card.

but for me the teamed MAC is different then the Primary MAC.

Question : Any Idea what would have caused this?

I have already solved this issue by updating the verison of teaming software and driver of Nic's.
But I want to know what would caused this... Please help
Thanks.

Run latest NIC driver

Primary should take over for Virtual

Thanks I did that already. The question is why it could have happened that the MAC were different.

Rahul,
No 2 MACs can be identical.
Teaming is purely virtual and aims to provide load balancing, fault tolerance or a combination.
Differences in MACs are handled or masked by the teaming software.
