how to config virtual port on switch 3750?

Specs: WIn7, 4GB
Hi, would someone give me advice how to config virtual port on switch 3750 so Windows 2k3 server with 2 NICs can have fault-tolerance if one of NICs fail.
here is what I want to have
NIC1 on port 1 : ip 192.168.10.122
NIC2 on port 2: ip: 192.168.10.123
Virtual port: 192.168.10.125 – Routes to both by round Robin or similar methodology.
Can Ping .122, 123 and will go direct or .125 and one will respond or the other. Same with traffic.

my w2k3 server serve as MS Exchange, DC.

I think you want to look into VRRP

Google is your friend

Go and google VRRP and start reading. Then once you know what it is, start reading the Cisco doc's for your switch and see if it's capable. If it is, then you'll want to figure out how to apply it.

VRRP or HSRP. I agree with Curt R. Google those terms and you should be all set.

Are those 2 protocols require 2 physical routers attached to a switch? I only have one 3750 switch connected to a server with 2 NICs. Can you provide the right direction I can accomplish the task? what if using adapter teaming, which one is performing better?

Geez!

compu-angus

If you put as much energy into research and reading as you do in coming back here and asking to be spoonfed answers........you'd have this all figured out and done by now.

The reason every responder in your thread has said the same thing (ie: "use google") is because there is not lack of information on the aforementioned topics. This isn't some arcane secret only 3 people on the planet know.

If you can't figure this out for yourself, you need to tell your boss to:
a) contract someone who does (like me)
or
b) fire you and hire someone who does.

As I tried pointing you to before virtual port is not the same as adapter teaming.
You want adapter teaming.

You are making this much harder on yourself then need be.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

I have done some research and I decided if I do on switch stack layer for my server, I will enable HSRP on switch, here is my config command

R1
config t
int gi1/0/1
no switch port (enabled routed port)
ip address 192.168.10.122 255.255.255.0 (assign physical IP1 for server)
standby ip 192.168.10.125 (enable HSRP with virtual IP)
standby priority 120 preempt
end

R2
config t
int gi2/0/1
no switch port
ip address 192.168.10.123 255.255.255.0 (assign physical IP2 for server)
standby ip 192.168.10.125
end

can anyone give suggestion if this config will work?
