Re: NIC teaming - Help me setup
You're going to be far better off with a Gigabit switch than teamed 10/100. The switch DOES support 802.3ad, so that's a good thing, but I just don't know how significant the benefit would truly be with the hassle.
Your server (desktop) is more than capable. Sazar, he's probably using the workstation since this is a desktop support role. And to get that amount of power rack mounted and redundant would have run another $2K.
