NIC teaming 2008R2 Enterprise

I have a windows deployment server with 4 nics. I want to use nic teaming on the 4 nics so that each nic can be connected to a different switch and client machines can be put on the various switches to retrieve images.

I am unsure what features need to be added or how this is setup.
Thanks

There is no teaming support built into Windows 2008 R2, you will need to use the teaming program provided by the NIC manufacturer, the common NIC manufacturers for servers tend to be Intel and Broadcom.

Hopefully you have Intel cards as the Broadcom teaming software isn't as easy to use.

There is a table on this page that will help you determine that, you will have to follow the instructions and get the details from device manager first: http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethernet_nic/determine_driver.php

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why
