    Both Nics are on the same network... but you want to team them together and act as one for either load balancing or active/passive?

    Since they're broadcom, you should likely download the appropriate BCS (Broadcom Control Suite) which will allow you to create a team.    This will create a third nic, using the BASP driver, which is where you will need to set your IP/Dns/etc.. information on.     So you'll still see the two physical nics, but the 3rd software-nic is the one that you use for everything from there on out.

  • Please confirm what kind of NIC you are using .. intel? if yes then see below. you would need to check the manufactures website for driver/software that will enable you configure NIC teaming in your environment. See below for step by step guide on how to configure NIC teaming for an INtel NIC card.
