Ok, I have read about installing multiple nic's in a server and expanding the throughput capabilities through load balancing. I might be using this term incorrectly. Now, depending on the application, wether it be a sql server, web server, active directory, and others have built in load balancing options when configured with other nodes on the network and so forth. Those are application specific options though.
My question is how to setup a windows 2008 server with multiple nics to generaly best utilize multiple nics? Do I bind services to individual nics? Is there some third party software for windows server that manages general network load balancing? Is there a windows setup procedure that can send traffic to the current least used network interface? I am wanting to best use the network throughput through multiple nics on one server, not distribute to other servers.
Title is changed and now the proper question is how I setup "teaming" multiple nics in windows server 2008?
