I have a new IBM x3650 series server which I have installed Hyper V and Server Core.
However, I cannot find any resources telling me how to perform NIC teaming with the Server Core host.
Appreciate if anyone can walk me through and/or share their experience.

When researching this before, I found out that Hyper-V does not like being setup with Teamed NICs. Also when trying it out for myself, I would run into some unexplained network acitivty here and theres so I would not recommend trying this in a production environment. In a lab environment you might be able to get away with it.

I have multiple hyper v guests using teamed intel nics running different vlans on the one host machine. This requires setting the team to 802.3ad mode and setting the switch it is connecting to to tunk mode with lacp.
I don't know if this is what you want to hear and I haven't worked with server core but you might want to make sure that what ever software you are using for teaming has not set the team to load balancing because I am sure that will never work.

Hi, Sorry been away for a while. Yes the host is Server2008 - have used Enterprise and datacentre editions (not that that would make much difference). I have had hyper V guest machines running server 2003 and 2008.
