You need at least one “team member first class” in the system, to be able to configure teams. Teaming features include failover protection, increased bandwidth throughput aggregation, and balancing of traffic among team members. 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. Indeed, the situation has changed a little. Supported adapters Teaming options are supported for Windows versions where the following Intel adapters receive full software support: Don’t add the primary back on that network until the server it was removed from is rebooted.

Restart the system or reload the team after doing Hot Plug operations with a team inyel includes a non-Intel adapter. Deleting virtual teams directly in Windows Device Manager can cause severe consequences.

VMLB provides transmit and receive traffic load balancing across Virtual Machines bound to the team interface. Note that some historical updates prevented teaming from working in Windows 10 the problem has been fixed by further Teamint updates.
Simultaneous transmission only occurs at multiple addresses. Regardless of speed, the primary adapter receives all other RX traffic.
Disabling STP prevents data loss when the primary adapter is returned to service failback. With RLB, all traffic other than IP traffic, is passed teaminh the primary adapter, regardless of its speed. A ‘failed’ primary adapter passes its MAC and Layer 3 address to the failover secondary adapter. Some only work against a single switch e. Simultaneous reception only occurs from multiple clients.
Even that way, apparently the Teaming stuff is not “plug and play” ready. Cannot start a team on its own, but can be invited to become a member of a team started by a 1st-class member.
This mode can be connected to any switch. Any failover increases network reaming until ARPs are resent.
When a primary is removed from a team, its MAC address stays with the team until the server is rebooted. This teaming type works with any switch.
Implementation considerations, including throughput and resource issues You can use static IP addresses for most servers including a server with a team of NICs. Some OS require reboots with any system configuration change. You can use teaming to add fault tolerance, load balancing, and link aggregation features to a group of ports. Microsoft mentions only two basic “configurations” of their teaming subsystem: Its Teaming tab allows you to access the teaming functionality.
Note that there are also NIC’s that do have a driver in the system and can work in a stand-alone fashion, but do not have a Teaming tab and are not proposed as possible members in the “new team wizard. You can easily get several dozen NIC instances active and dormant in the registry, and especially the Intel driver in Windows doesn’t seem to be very well tested for this use case: Some of the Intel teaming guides also mention “multiple vendor Teaming”, but no particular other Vendor or NIC is ever mentioned.

Active aggregators in software determine team membership between the switch and the ANS ijtel or between switches. Not all team types are available on all operating systems and twaming adapters. Equivalent to EtherChannel or Link Aggregation.
Hence their decisions on what NIC you are allowed to use for teaming. Don’t add the primary back on that network until the server it was removed from is rebooted. The Intel teaming framework supports about 5 different modes, some geared towards fault tolerance, others toward performance. The test focused strictly on the Intel-proprietary ANS teaming.

Must be used with an When you run this test, the team temporarily intrl network connectivity. Turn off STP on the incoming ports of the switches directly connected to the adapters in the team, or configure ports for PortFast.
Supported adapters Teaming options are supported for Windows versions where the following Intel adapters receive full software support: Use the New Team option and follow the wizard to create a team.
