    Can anyone in simple terms explain what the difference is between Static Link Aggregation and Dynamic Link Aggregation?

    Or can anyone point me to resource I can read more on the subject?

    I've configured SLA interfaces on 2 servers and I've noticed that one NIC receives the data while the other sends acks. This is the case for one destination IP.

    I haven't tested multiple destinations yet.

    edit: I have LAG capable switch (IEEE 802.3ad) and I have LAG's configured. Switch tests in NIC Team properties (Intel) complete fine.

    We're using Dell PowerConnect 2824 and 2848 switches. They don't support Dynamic Link Aggregation by the looks of it (here - Tech Specs tab). I was just curoius what I'm missing.

    Thanks

    Dynamic refers to the capability to use lacp to allow both sides to negotiate the link.
