Adding static MAC address

I'm trying to implement Windows NLB between two servers connected to a 3COM 2952 SPF PLUS switch. Multicast mode is not working properly (performance is awful) so I'm trying Unicast now.

To prevent flooding, I trying to add the cluster MAC address to both switch ports, but web management only allows one port to have the some MAC address. Any ideas how to solve this?


If you want we can also talk about the multicast performance problem. When NLB is set to multicast a single page takes about 5-10 seconds to load, while in unicast mode it is shown inmediatly. All my switched are 3COM (one 2952, several 2916 and some unmanaged switches).


Thanks for your time!
