In Windows Server but not in Win 8. With RLB, all traffic other than IP traffic, is passed on the primary adapter, regardless of its speed. This teaming type works with any switch. Adding a port can cause system instability. Simultaneous reception only occurs from multiple clients. The Intel AMT enabled device must be designated as the primary adapter for the team.

The physical adapter buffers or descriptors might need to be increased when set into a team.

A ‘failed’ primary adapter passes its MAC and Layer 3 address to the failover secondary adapter. This mode can be connected to any switch. The latter roughly correlates with Some only work against a single switch e.

Some advanced features, including hardware offloading, are automatically disabled when non-Intel adapters are team members to assure a common feature set. Hence their decisions on what NIC you are allowed to use for teaming.


The feature set of the team e. Teams display as Virtual Adapters in Windows. Not all team types are available on all operating systems and all adapters. Any port that displays in the Intel PROset teaming wizard can be included in a team including older Intel adapters and non-Intel adapters.


Receive Load Balancing RLB Offers increased network bandwidth by allowing reception over two to eight ports from multiple addresses.

Teaming with IntelĀ® Advanced Network Services

Non-routed protocols are transmitted only over the primary adapter. Must be used with an Temaing a primary is removed from a team, its MAC address stays with the team until the server is rebooted.

Actually if you don’t mess with the Ethernet ports too much, this is a piece of cake compared to e. Teaming features include failover protection, increased bandwidth throughput aggregation, and balancing of traffic among team members.

When you run this test, the team temporarily loses network connectivity. Intel has always tried to draw an artificial boundary between the desktop and entry-level server hardware a marketing choice, sometimes enforced by rules implemented in software.

Simultaneous reception only occurs from multiple clients. You can create a VMLB team with mixed-speed adapters. You can’t stop progress.

This step is optional but strongly recommended. Spanning Tree STP must be running on the network to make sure that loops are eliminated. Configure team member features similarly or failover and team functionality are affected with possible severe consequences.

Show all Show less. The Intel teaming framework supports about 5 different modes, some geared towards fault tolerance, others toward performance.


How to team your NICs in Windows for better throughput on server – CCBoot v Diskless Boot System

All the NIC’s could do it, including the “low end” desktop models. The test focused strictly on the Intel-proprietary ANS teaming. Use Virtual Machine Load Balancing mode if you want to balance both transmit and receive traffic. In the good old days of trusty Intel Gigabit NIC’s that you could swear on, jumbo support was automatic.

Intel Ethernet Teaming

The stock Intel NIC drivers, those shipped by Microsoft as part of the Windows instal media, do not come with the Intel teaming functionality. This teaming type works with any switch. Supported adapters Teaming options are supported for Windows versions where the following Intel adapters receive full software support: I’ll debate the apparent differences in some further chapter.
