Trunking Problem

We have a HP DL380G6 Server with 4 x NIC’s configured via teaming into 1 x single IP Address, I’ve configured port 1 on 4 switches, these are stacked, using the trunking commands below reconnected the cables to both the switch and server unfortunately the server is no longer able to see the network. If I remove the cables, delete the trunk and then reconnect, the server can again see the network.  The commands I’m using are..

trunk ethe 1/1/1 ethe 2/1/1 ethe 3/1/1/ ethe 4/1/1 

write memory

trunk deploy

Any suggestions on where I'm going wrong?

Thanks

Re: Trunking Problem

Can you set the server to use LACP?  If so then configuret= the switches to LACP static or dynamic .

Switch based trunking (not LACP) will be one of the many modes that the server NIC's will support but you must shoose the correct mode.  One should be LACP and this is the best one to use.

Thanks
