I am configuring a server to have two ethernet ports (one as primary, the other is redundant) connected to two different switches. In the switches, I enabled the sticky MAC address and configured the two ports on the server as Net Switch Team and fixed a MAC address for the team.
when doing the failover test, I unplugged the primary and the redundant link was up (as expected) but when I unplug the redundant before restoring the primary then restoring both links the server will not be able to ping the switch unless I turn off the Sticky MAC address off in the switches.
I am thinking maybe because the Ethernet Adapter Card has both ports in it and if I applied the same thing on two different ports in two different Ethernet adapter cards it will work fine. Is that true? and if yes why?
Thanks in advanced, Best regards.
