I was recently given a pointer to the following document:

Windows Server 2012 NIC Teaming (LBFO) Deployment and Management

It is a very comprehensive guide to setting up network teaming in Windows Server 2012, and discusses many of the common questions that I hear about network teaming (it also discusses network teaming an Hyper-V at length).  If you are using (or are planning to use) Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 in a production environment – you really should read this document, so you understand all the options that are now available to you for network redundancy and performance.

  • Interesting. I have a question about teaming though.

    Currently on HP DL server with two NICs. Instead of teaming (which in WS2008 requires OEM software) we simply have two IPs on physical and two virtual network adapters in each VM.

    The idea is to load balance, but obviously there's no redundancy (not without manually changing DNS, then disabling NIC, etc).

    In this case, is performance better with two NICs than just one?

  • Hello,  I have been looking all over for this information.  Maybe you can help.  Is Microsoft NIC teaming in server 2012 supported on domain controller.  I can find everywhere that it is not recommended with non microsoft teaming, but it is never clear is it is supported now with microsofts implementation.  Thanks
