Only the primary adapter receives incoming traffic. Show all Show less. With RLB, all traffic other than IP traffic, is passed on the primary adapter, regardless of its speed. We appreciate all feedback, but cannot reply or give product support. 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. Hot Plug operations with non-Intel adapters that are part of a team cause system instability. This step is optional but strongly recommended.

You can create a VMLB team with mixed-speed adapters. Generally if you start messing with two motherboards and several plug-in cards, you may face weird behaviors – what appear to be bugs in the Intel driver.

This teaming type works with any switch. The test focused strictly on the Intel-proprietary ANS teaming. Active aggregators in software determine team membership between the switch and the ANS software or between switches.

Designed to guarantee server availability to the network. Turn off STP on the incoming ports of the switches directly connected to the adapters in the team, or configure ports for PortFast. Email Required, but never shown.


The physical adapter buffers or descriptors might need to be increased when set into a team. Sign up using Email and Password. VMLB provides transmit and receive traffic load balancing across Virtual Machines bound to the team interface. I’m a hair’s breadth away from going back to Windows 8. Plus some add-on NIC boards. Can only be used in conjunction with ALB.

Any port that displays in the Intel PROset teaming wizard can be included in a team including older Intel adapters and non-Intel adapters. All bindings are restored when the LBFO team is removed.

When a primary is removed from a team, its MAC address stays with the team until the server is rebooted. Use the New Team option and follow the wizard to create a team. Edited by SaintMaybe Monday, August 22, 9: If you’ve already installed the driver oops! The secondary adapter becomes the primary if possible at failure of the primary, or its cable or link partner.

In order to find out, if a particular Intel NIC is “1st class”, open the device manager, find the particular NIC device and check the “Properties” dialog.

Regards Please mark the reply as an answer if you find it is helpful. Virtual Adapters require memory resources intsl the physical adapters. When you run this test, the team temporarily loses network connectivity.


The Intel teaming framework supports kntel 5 different modes, some geared towards fault tolerance, others toward performance. This step is optional but strongly recommended.

Sorry to be pedantic but strictly not true. Equivalent to EtherChannel or Link Aggregation. The following table fairly incomplete is a record of our simple test session.

Receive Load Balancing RLB Offers increased network bandwidth by allowing reception over two to eight ports from multiple addresses. Teaming features Teaming features include failover protection, increased bandwidth throughput aggregation, and balancing of traffic among team members.
