We just purchased an N8800-Pro + Intel ET Quad NIC (as per supported NIC list published by Thecus), the intension was to team some of these NIC's to the existing 2 built-in NIC's, or alternatively team all 4 ports of this Quad port NIC together, to increase bandwidth for NFS stores serving VMware ESXi hosts. Surprisingly, the limited configuration options within the additional NIC GUI, this isn’t possible. Not only this, but none of the new NIC ports can be given an IP address in the same IP segment. I would have assumed anyone purchasing an additional NIC and installing into the N8800-Pro would only be doing so for a teaming purpose !, does anyone have any bright ideas how the above can be achieved ?
