NIC Teaming & Hyper-V


Trying to leverage our collection of aging servers, we have been teaming the network interface cards to achive greater throughput: hardware is HP DL-class servers and server OS is Windows 2k8 R2. Then I had an idea and thought I might load Hyper-v, and discovered the little known secret that Microsoft does not support NIC teaming and Hyper-V. So my nicely functioning server for development is not functioning properly anymore, and a series of other projects have prevented me from undoing the damage. Tried to get to a web interface on the server, and the page will not load. Need to drill into the causes and discover the solutions.

Microsoft’s KB article on the matter: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968703
