I have 3 nic teams in Server 2012 R2.

I renamed them all in Network Connections so that I could tell them apart

Domain-DC
Domain-SQL
Domain-Host

When I go to use them for making virtual switched in hypervisor, they only show up as

"Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Driver"
"Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Driver #2"
"Microsoft Network Adapter Multiplexor Driver #3"

I looked in the registry and found instances of them but was unable to tell them apart there either. I looked but was unable to identify a mac address key in the key/folder that they were in (in the registry)

My understanding is that the underlying driver reference name should not be changed. And this isn't unique to teams. You see the same behavior with individual adapters. You can rename an adapter for easy identification in networking, but the switch interface displays the driver name, not the adapter name. You just have to match them up and assign them properly.

Thanks Cliff.

I guess I'll just id them and make notes for future reference.
