OCS and HP Teaming for NICs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Someone told me that it is I should not use teaming with HP Network Configuration Utility on OCS server.  He told me that I have to use only one NIC on the server.

    Does anyone know anything about this?  Can I use teaming or should I disable it?

    Thank you.

  • I have done a couple OCS deployments with NIC teaming enabled and I have not heard of any issues.

  • I agree. I have deployed OCS 2007 R1 with HP teamed NICs and have had no issues.

  • Hello,

    in fact, It is recommended to use teaming if you are having more than two NIC, i have used HP teaming many times without any issue.

    Please go ahead.

  • Currently NIC teaming is not supported and not tested. We might see some Audio/Video Latency issues if you have teaming enabled. I dont have any public Document though.

  • For those that have NIC teaming enabled what is the configuration that was used?

     We are using HP nic teaming configuration software.

  • We read the same thing.  We had teaming enabled on our servers, but found some articles that it affected latency, so we turned off the teaming.  So far, we don't see any difference.
