Hi. I have (5)1Gb NIC cards on a brand new Server 2012 R2 rack server I just built as a Hyper-V host. The Guest VMs will server IIS, FILE, FTP, CF, SQL and I will play around with "Job Folders" or "Work Folders" whichever its called and SAN.

All machines need to point out. What is the ideal way to setup NIC teaming for this scenerio.

For lots of credit points keep your eye on my username if you are good with Server 2012 applications because I will be configuring these 2 servers over the next several days and asking lots of questions in the process.

Not nearly enough information to answer that question. A SQL server that has time sensitive needs may be better off with SR-IOV and maybe even teaming in the guest, whereas an FTP server moving large files would be better served with a LACP team' The "best choice" is *very* workload dependent and a list of roles doesn't illuminate at all how those roles will be used.

For now I setup a Team of 2  for the Host and 3 for the VMs. Both are Switch independent and Dynamic.
I would show you a snip of it but cant seem to be able to RDP into it.

Right now I'm configuring Hyper-V and the switch on the machine. Then I will setup the DC on the 1st VM then the another copy with SQL as the next because I run a streaming media server for my church and their morning service depends on it.

SQL or anything else I run is all that sensitive as long as http://apelectricservices.com which funds all of this stays running which is temproarily running from my W7 desktop until we get through.

I'm about to ask "Server 2012 R2 1st Virtual Domain Controller Help"

Although I'm not following all of this post< I was looking at following the VM structure here:
