Your VM's use proprietry NIC's which don't support teaming.  HYPER-V won't let you team a NIC and use it as part of the Virtual network.

I believe that this issue is being addressed in SP1 for Windows 2008 Server R2 (allowing teaming of NICs at the host layer).

If they are teamed at a physical layer, why would you want to team them on a VM.

Anyway, you can only team adaptors if the drivers support NIC teaming and the Microsoft Virtual Machine Bus Adaptors don't support it.

The reason for the teaming, is if you team the fysical mashine, you can not use Hyper-V virtual adapters on that teaming, but if you make the connectin from hyper-v to each NIC, and then team it, then you will have a failover ont the NIC. there for i will like to team the virtial NIC, if it can be done by regedit.

Well the SP1 NIC teaming in 2008 R2 server has been fix, but using the teaming on Server R2 on the Hyper-V has not been fix, just run the test and it will not work. :-( if it´s was working, i will not ask this quisten.
