if you make true nic teaming config on server
procurve switch can see this team config and change dynamically trunk state own ports

Have setup ALB on the server with 2 nics
(http://www.intel.com/support/network/sb/cs-009747.htm#Modes)

what kind of bandwidth should i expect to get, the nics are gigabit, i still need to turn off STP on the switch ports, will do that Monday.

how can i test the nics for bandwidth etc?
