HP has published 2 white papers describing their NIC teaming support for Hyper-V.

First is a 5-page "how to" document specific to HP ProLiant. Here's the abstract:

HP ProLiant Network Teaming Software allows ProLiant systems running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V to take advantage of network controller teaming technology. This paper describes, for system administrators and technicians, the method of software installation for implementing network controller teaming and it identifies known issues with teaming and Hyper-V software. 

Second is a 59-page whitepaper that:

provides a high- and low-level discussion of the technology behind HP ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming for HP ProLiant servers running Microsoft Windows. HP ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming is software-based technology used by server administrators and network administrators to increase a server’s network availability and performance. HP ProLiant Network Adapter Teaming provides network adapter,
network port, network cable, switch, and communication path fault recovery technology, in addition to, transmit and receive load balancing technology.

  • I am quite spun around on the whole NIC teaming thing in Hyper V.  So what's the official stance.  

    NIC teaminig (like LACP) in Hyper-V is not supported by Microsoft.  Correct?

    NIC teaming is supported in Hyper-V by the oem manufacturers or the NIC cards or servers themselves?!

  • oh - just not iSCSI traffic - “To be supported, configurations using iSCSI hardware HBAs must use the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator Service to handle login and logout from all iSCSI targets. iSCSI HBAs which don’t use the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator Service are not supported. “

  • Please, don't smoke weed while you write posts..you talk about teaming solutions while microsoft publish articles like that...


    It's a shame, really. I bet in my company for Hyper-V instead VMware and now a can't have Nic teaming....

  • Miquel, why can you not use nic-teaming on Hyper-V???? This is fully supported by HP. Yes, Microsoft can not provide support on the driver/software that HP created, that is the only thing the article states. No vendor in the industry will provide support on software another vendor created.
