NIC Teaming

I have a DL380 G3 with dual NC7781 nics both using driver version 7.74.0.0

each card works fine and is currently set with individual IP addresses, but when I try to team these cards I get a message saying it failed to create the team

Any ideas?

Re: NIC Teaming

Similar problem with ML370 G4 NIC7771 and NIC7781 as team. (w2k3)

I can build a team, but as soon as the system is rebooted, the team fails.

Tried various windows updates / hp update driver combinations.

Re: NIC Teaming

I just got this working on a ML370 with a NC7771 and NC7781. Called HP Support who had me upgrade and then downgrade the HP Network Utility with no result. After carefully reading the Event Log I disabled the Offload options on both NIC's and the team came up with no problem. I'm not sure if I was supposed to disable the offload options on both NIC's, but that is what I did to get this to work. The Event Log message was incredibly verbose and described the issue precisely,which let to the resolution.
NIC driver version 7.80, Network Utility version 7.74 (NOT 7.80)
