LACP or Trukning

Hello

We have 3 HP ProCurve 2848 (j4904a) switches in our network

1 for our servers, and 2 for our clients.
We have setup port 45&46 in a trunk to client switch 1 and 47&48 to client switch 2 to get 2 gbit.

What is best to use?
LACP or Trunking to connect the client switches to the server switch.

Yes, it's switch to switch config.

So i we must use Trukning there.

What about from HP DL360 servers to HP 2428 procurve switch?

We have teamed the NIC's on the servers.

Just a slight correction...

Switch-to-switch it doesn't make any difference whether you choose LACP or Trunking as protocol. With server, LACP.
