Must be used with an If the system is used more heavily, consider tuning both the base adapter and the virtual adapter settings for either RX or TX traffic. Safari Chrome IE Firefox. The secondary adapter becomes the primary if possible at failure of the primary, or its cable or link partner.

I’ve found many articles describing teaming across separate controllers, some that imply that you can do it on the same controller.

Hell, even my Intel RST controller worked fine until Windows 10 – now it’s a train-wreck, literally destroying irreplacable data my mistake because I had just donated my mirror machine days before.

I want it to failover gracefully. Sign in to vote.

Regardless of speed, the primary adapter receives all other RX traffic. Teaming features include failover protection, increased bandwidth throughput aggregation, and balancing of traffic among team members. Use the New Team option and follow the wizard to create a team.


Cannot start a team on its own, but can be invited to become a member of a team started by a 1st-class member. Receive Load Balancing RLB Offers teamingg network bandwidth by allowing reception over two to eight ports from multiple addresses. In Windows Server but not in Win 8.

Windows 10 Networking https: Non-routed protocols are transmitted only over the primary adapter.

Preston Wednesday, August 24, Implementation considerations, including throughput and resource issues You can use static IP addresses for most servers including a server with a team of NICs. Friday, July 1, 2: The Windows Server native teaming stack should work with pretty much any NIC that has a basic driver available, bar some of the accelerated features or jumbo frames see above.

You need at least one in the system to configure a team. Its Teaming tab allows you to access the teaming functionality.

switch – Intel Dual-Port Controller Teaming – Server Fault

Only two adapters can be assigned to an SFT team. The latter roughly correlates with Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. The LMLB team also provides fault tolerance in the event of switch port, cable, or adapter failure.

Later on came a time, in the tesming of i to i4x series chipsets, when the PCI-e and LOM chips typically did not support jumbo, but there were a select few higher-end chips that did.

Hence their decisions on what NIC you are allowed to use for teaming.

Teaming with IntelĀ® Advanced Network Services

Even that way, apparently the Teaming stuff is not “plug and play” ready. Throughput is always higher to multiple addresses than to a single address, regardless of the number of adapters.
