Verifying the Bonding Driver

  1. The Windows Server 2003 operating system (OS) uses functions provided by the Intel bonding driver for grouping and bonding.

Configuring the Redundancy Mode

  1. Install the Intel 82571 NIC driver Intel(R) PRO Network Connections Software Version 11.1.

    Double-click Autorun.exe in the program package. The installation window shown in Figure 4-13 is displayed. Choose Install Drivers. Accept the end user license agreement, choose full installation, and click Next until the program installation is complete.

  2. Group NICs.

    On the OS desktop, right-click My Computer, and choose Manage > Device Manager > Network adapters. Right-click the Intel NIC, and choose Properties from the shortcut menu. The properties page shown in Figure 4-14 is displayed. Click the Teaming tab, select Teaming with other adapters in the Teaming options area, and click OK.

    Figure 4-18 Bonding result

    After connecting network cables, right-click TEAM: TeamIntel82571 and choose Properties. On the Settings tab, one NIC is in the active state, and the other is in the standby state, as shown in Figure 4-19.

    Figure 4-19 NIC status

    Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter is in the active state, and Intel(R) PRO/1000 PT Dual Port Server Adapter #2 is in the standby state. Pay attention to status changes in subsequent operations.

    Status changing takes certain time. When the active NIC changes to a standby NIC, its status is displayed as Disable for certain time, and then the status is displayed as Standby.

    In the properties of My Network Places, you can view the newly added logical NIC. Configure an IP address for the logical NIC in the same way as a common NIC.

Configuring the Load Balancing Mode

  1. Configure the server and install the driver in the same way as Configuring the Redundancy Mode. When selecting a team mode, select Static Link Aggregation, as shown in Figure 4-20.
