We have a Dell Powerconnect 5524 with two 10 gig fiber ports. Our server has an Intel X520 dual 10 gig fiber port. I wish to create a static LAG.
24 connections come into the switch. We have two cables out to the NIC. I have read all the manuals, online tips, etc. But still fail to aggregate the ports successfully. I sometimes see that the NIC card does not see that the switch is setup properly.
I suspect that I am missing an overall concept that the manuals take for granted that I know.
I LAG the two fiber ports on the switch in various ways. No luck.
Do I have to actually include all 24 ports that are connected to other switches as well as the two fiber ports in the same LAG?
The NIC teams successfully. But not being happy with the switch setup, it reverts to failover teaming not STATIC LAG. We are feeding a 16 SSD drive RAID 0. Speed is required to utilize it fully.
