VM NIC Teaming Server unmanagable

I have 2 VMs running .
I have 4 nic adapters. 2 in a team for the host and 2 in virtual switches.
Both VM,'s  have the same network switches in their settings. The first vm is teaming the switches and working well. The second vm when trying to turn on Teaming shows "host unmanageable" after the server name and displays no adapters in the teaming dialog box. It has network connectivity but no teaming ability. Have I missed something?

make sure the NIC drivers are fully up to date. I came across it and this turned out to be the issue.

secondly, restart the host and then try (if possible out of hours otherwise)

All drivers are up to date and a reboot had no effect.

Found the issue!
When renaming the server I used a name that was too long.  When I realized the Teaming GUI was showing a truncated name as unmanageable I shortened the name and restarted. Everything s up now! Gui showing adapters and managing the new team!

glad you are sorted.
I normally keep the naming convention simple and intuitive. So for host management, called it Host_Team and for VMs, may be call it VM Network or GuestAdapter

Thanks Kash for the try.

I found several issues that cause this problem and numerous ways to take apart your system to fix it. But, it was just luck I noticed the name. This may be a quick check for others that may have this issue before they spend an hour or 2 .
