Re: NIC teaming

Use LACP (IEEE 802.3ad) on both sides: on HPE ProLiant 2-Ports NIC side, aggregate those two ports using LACP Load Balancing...on Switch side create a LAG with 2 interfaces and use LACP...only then connect two cables between formed LAGs. It should work flawlessly. Better bandwidth is achieved only if traffic to (or from) LACP peer is able to be distributed on both physical links and this depends on hashing algorithm results...these results, for each data flow, depend on various payload parameters (Source/Destination MAC Addresses, Source/Destination IP Addresses and/or Ports...depending on if Hashing happens at Layer 2, 3, or 4).

Re: NIC teaming

Select Dynamic (LACP Enabled), select member ports (two in your case, to be paired to ports of your Server's NIC) and you're done. Only then interconnect your HPE ProLiant Server's NIC ports to your two Switch aggregated interfaces. Switch side, LACP System priority can be left at default.

Re: NIC teaming

i did what you told me .. link aggregation with LADP 

on the server i chose the following , is this correct ? ping passes normally and i am able to access the server ( it shows 2 Gbps ) 

also i have a 1920 switch and a 1910 ( i can make both 1920 if i want ) .. to connect these i haveonly connected a regular cat6 cable between the two ..it works but can i get more out of them ?
