Download and install the latest supportpaq for the server.

Then using the HP Network Configuration Utility.

You would create a team and select 'switch assisted load balancing' for 802.3ad support.

Visit this pdf for more info.

Good Luck

Hi Rocl,

the link sent by Steve is great...got almost all you need.

a point that I would like to highlight, create the Multi Link Trunk on your switch before you setup SLB team on your Windows host. Also check the load balancing algorithm used at the switch level.

hope it helps and could you please assign points to the replies...:)

regards,
