@ShaneMadden The inbuilt windows 'network bridge' creates a virtual interface that uses spanning tree to run a active/standby HA for network interfaces.

@ShaneMadden I am not really concerned about DCs having LACP. It was other 2008 r2 servers; like a file server, or a CAS etc. This fault has made me question my assumptions around lacp and windows. In those situations I would really like additional bandwidth, but full lbfo would be ideal.

@ShaneMadden: I really hoping that wasn't my only option.

@ShaneMadden:Can I ask you what your experience with link aggr in windows server has been? Do you use it? Do you do something different? Do you have any suggestions for safely load balancing network links in windows?

@ShaneMadden: I don't. I am hesitant to try recreating the problem to gather information.

I thought maybe AD was relevant too.

@ShaneMadden: Yes, it was not present in the snap-in and nslookup said it didnt exist either. I couldn't believe such a problem could exist. I was very surprised.

@ShaneMadden: There were no changes on any server running dns, but the zone affected was an AD integrated zone. Could this be a factor?

@Matt: An interesting thought but in an LACP group isn't a single MAC used?

comment Link Aggregation & Windows Servers
@ShaneMadden: The DC that LACP was configured on was not a dns server. The host for the A record that was lost is a DC with dns.

comment LACP Aggregation between Cisco C3750X and HP JD990A
The Cisco one. I discounted using that mode as well but cisco support advised me to use it and it worked.
