Hi, I just configured an Intel/dell based NIC Teaming on a dell server running windows 2000 advanced server, but network connectivity seems to be intermittent I mean sometimes is up and suddenly comes down and then comes up again... (weirdo... and I can't fugure out how to troubleshoot that)

Config details:
- Server: Dell PowerEdge 4400
- Switch: Dell PowerConnect 5324 (out of the box config)
- Two of these: NIC: Intel PRO1000 MT Dual Port Server Adapter
- One of this: Intel PRO1000 MT PCI Gigabit Server Adapter
* Total: 5 NIC's (5 GB bandwidth)
- TEAM#0: Intel ProSet sofware, Maximun Bandwith Mode with Jumbo Frames enabled and LACP Dynamic Aggregation Algorithm.

Note: All cables are virtually and phisically tested.

thanks in advance on any suggestions or advicing...

Are all of the jumbo frame sizes set the same?

Mixed company doesn't play well with each other.

of course i did (since intel PROSET force all NICS to have the same Jumbo sizes)
issue was just solved due a configuration in the switch, i setup a new channel for the team
