We have a Dell server running stand-aloneWin2003 Web Edition with 2 network
adapters. One private IP is assigned to first NIC, the other is temporary
disabled. We want to achieve that both network adapters are active using one
private IP, in case one of them fails.

Can this be done with load balancing or with supported Dell software to team
two NIC's into one? What is the best practice?

Thank you in advance,

Regards,Miha
