Many thanks for the feedback...
I have been using the iANS driver suggested by
with the very latest MT1000 server adapter drivers
from intel. I'll give those two links a run and see if
there's anything that I may have missed.
What has me a bit miffed is that if I build the
machine using the S.A. CD from DELL, the teaming can
be setup without a problem. But using the very same
drivers off the S.A. CD after installing a clean &
lean install from the redhat cd's, the teaming doesn't
work. Which had me thinking that DELL use a script or
something to setup the team on the cards.
As for the teaming, the box will be used as a
fileserver, I'd like to be able to use load balancing
with the two cards on the gig switch as they'll get
a good bit of data pushed thru them.
anyways I'll give your suggestions a try and see how
