Want to set up Dual NIC teaming on NetWare 6? Here's how we did it.

We created an NCF file named DUALNIC.NCF with all of the necessary commands in it - this loaded everything without having to do anything in INETCFG. This file can be copied to the sys\system directory on other servers that have dual NIC setup.

Example

#CREATED TO LOAD THE DRIVERS AND BINDS FOR THE DUAL NIC
load CE1000 name=link1 frame=Ethernet_ii slot=201
load CE1000 name=link2 frame=Ethernet_ii slot=202
load ians frame=ethernet_ii
bind ians link1 primary
bind ians link2
load ians commit mode=AFT
bind ip ians addr=10.0.0.27 mask=255.0.0.0
