Hyper-v : Cant ping physical network after creating Virtual switch

I have a server with 4 nics running Server 2012 R2. I have created a nic team containing all 4 adaptors.

I have then installed Hyper-V server. It has 2 Server 2012 R2 servers on it as VMs.

I have created a virtual switch using the teamed nic mentioned above.
I have ticked the box to share the virtual adapter with the management OS.

The host server has an ip address of
The VM servers have ip address of and 11 respectively.

My problem is that I cant seem to connect the VMs to the physical network. I cant ping or 11 from or vice versa. I also cant ping the router from the VMs.

What am I doing wrong?

One NIC with four ports or two NICs with two ports?

Create one team of two ports (one per adapter if two NICs) for the host OS to communicate with the production network.

Create another team of two ports exclusive to the vSwitch.

If Gigabit connections and Broadcom NICs make sure VMQ is disabled for _all_ physical ports on the server.

You will need to remove the vSwitch already created from the VM(s) before deleting it and the underlying four port team.

I deleted all the NICs from the team and then recreated the team. Everything then started working as it should.

Not sure why it didnt work before but it works now.
