New to Hyper-V Server 2012 -  Test Environment

Physical Server has three NIC’s (one for controlling / communicating with the VM and two for use in VM – question do I network team in windows the two nic then use this team and setup a virtual switch when configuring the vm machine
Current setup
Network Team in windows two nic
-      Switch Independent (as we don’t have managed switches)
-      Hyper-V Port

In Virtual Switch Properties
Choose Adaptor – Microsoft Adaptor Multiplex Driver
•      External Network

If you want networking teaming, resilience, team in the host. Using the Network Team function.

Yes, you can create a team of both NICs and then create a virtual adapter from the teamed network adapter: in that case all virtual machines will share the same virtual adapter (virtual switch). Or, you can create two virtual adapters (virtual switches) from both NICs without teaming them first. It all depends on your network design.

you don't need to team...
as mentioned you can establish a virt switch
name them network 1 and network 2
allow each VM to connect to both
provided redundancy without teaming

and later if you want to segregate traffic you just use one 'network, switch, NIC' to accomplish

since your probably using hyperV
just view the HV manager and setup the connection there

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks both – Spaperov if I have only one vm machine running I should team both together (best performance, but if I have two vm running I should make two virtual switches one per running vm

Create a single virtual switch, with two nics, and connect both VMs to the switch

It depends on the network load. Example, if you have two machines – one of them with a heavy network load (multiple users, multiple simultaneous connections) and the other with very low network traffic, than teaming will help. If, on other hand, both virtual machines have equal network load than the teaming wound help much (but it won’t hurt either).

OK - so I am not using network team on host - but when I make a new virtual switch I can only choose one NIC from the drop down box (see screenshot attached)

Why would you want to?

You can have two virtual switched, then bind those two virtual switches to a single vm.
