I have installed the Hyper V role on a new installed Windows server 2008 R2 Datacenter. This server has a NIC team configuration.

In the HyperV virtual network configuration it lists the available adapters that I can use for it. I want my future VMs to take advantage of my NIC team configuration.

I have spotted that one of the NIC available is the TEAM adapter. I have noticed that this adapter was created when the Team was formed. Should I select this adapter for my virtual network?

Yes, definitely, you need to provide IP address to this adapter and use this adapter to build Hyper-V external network (Virtual network) in Hyper-V switch manager
After you configured this external network, that teamed NIC will become switch and you will find one more virtual NIC that is actually represents your network

Do not forget to select "allow management os to share this network adapter" otherwise you will not be able to connect to hyper-v base server through RDP \ locally
