While I found some posts here discussing LACP/trunking/bonding, I really have not found a guide/instructions how to set it up from the start.
I have a HP microserver Gen8 with OMV 2.2.5. Both NICs are connected to a Netgear smart managed switch (GS108Tv2). (The third NIC for ILO is connected to an unmanaged switch).
I actually don't have a communication partner, that uses LACP. Nevertheless, from my understanding, LACP should help me to get better performance, when serving two or more single NIC clients. (I am well aware, that there are other restrictions. Now I get about 100+ MByte/s read/write speed from one disk, I would expect, that another disk should yield about the same speed in parallel. I use 4 HDs, no RAID, no logical volumes).
For installing OMV I selected eth0 (there was no choice, to select two NICS, at least, I did not find one). For the moment, I am using DHCP, however I think to switch to static adresses soon. In the WebGUI I can add eth1, but I guess, that won't buy much or even make things fail because the other NIC would get a separate IP in the same net with the options I saw.
So my question: Can anybody show or give a link, how to set this up from scratch? (at least the OMV side, for the switch side the manual seems to give sufficient information)
