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: Cannot start a team on its own, but can be invited to become a member of a team started by a 1st-class member. Some OS require reboots with any system configuration change. Use Virtual Machine Load Balancing mode if you want to balance both transmit and receive traffic. Any port that displays in the Intel PROset teaming wizard can be included in a team including older Intel adapters and non-Intel adapters. With RLB, all traffic other than IP traffic, is passed on the primary adapter, regardless of its speed.

The primary adapter is the adapter that carries the most traffic.

This mode can be connected to any switch. Adding a port can cause system instability. If you’ve already installed the driver oops! Restart the system or reload the team after doing Hot Plug operations with a team that includes a non-Intel adapter. Configure team member features similarly or failover and team functionality are affected with possible severe consequences. When you run this test, the team temporarily loses network connectivity.

I’ll debate the apparent differences in some further chapter.

Nevertheless, during the years there is some unstoppable progress, the register-level interface of the NIC hardware sometimes changes in a big step rather than by minor tweaks and slow evolution.


The feature set of the team e.

Interestingly, the NIC’s still typically pop up with a driver installed automagically – but this will be a stock Windows driver, some older version originally from Intel, adopted by Microsoft earlier on into the Windows installer. Can only be used in conjunction with ALB. We appreciate all feedback, but cannot reply or give product support.

If you have 5 or more Ethernet ports in the system, or you keep liberally swapping cards and moving them around in slots a lot, the Intel driver can easily get confused. Please consider upgrading to the latest version of your browser by clicking one of the following links.

Designed to guarantee server availability to the network.

The secondary adapter becomes the primary if possible at failure of the primary, or its cable or link partner. Fault Tolerance If the primary adapter, its cabling, or the link partner inc, Intel ANS uses one or more secondary adapters to take over. All bindings are restored when the LBFO team is removed.

The latter roughly correlates with Turn off STP on the incoming ports of the switches directly connected to the adapters in the team, or configure ports for PortFast. Don’t add the primary back on that network until the server it was removed from is rebooted.


If you require a response, contact support. Later on came a time, in the era 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.

Teaming features Teaming features include failover protection, increased bandwidth throughput aggregation, and balancing of traffic among team members. If you download a current driver from Intel, its. You can’t stop progress. Bandwidth increase is only available when connecting to multiple destination addresses.

This teaming type works with any switch.

The test focused strictly on the Intel-proprietary ANS teaming. Show all Show less.

Click or the topic for details: The LMLB team also provides reaming tolerance in the event of switch port, cable, or adapter failure. Only two adapters can be assigned to an SFT team. Another feature that has surfaced “out of nowhere” is the IEEE client only support in modern Intel chips – suddenly available “across the board”.

The following table fairly incomplete is a record of our simple test session.
